ACT Now

Wow. Two posts today, and I still managed to miss my Blogging for ACT post.

I wonder how long I can play this “I have a new baby!” card?

Anyhow, I don’t have time right now to post anything more insightful or lengthy, but I wanted to point out that post-partum depression effects more women than I had previously realized, and there are probably many more women who go undiagnosed.

If you get a moment, check out the MOTHERS Act Bill, which seeks to increase education, awareness, provide support for women suffering from PPD. If it is something you wish to throw your support behind, please contact your Senator and ask them to support this bill.

For more info, including what you can do, check out this Blogher post.

Thanks.

    Thanks for your support of the MOTHERS Act. Too often postpartum depression is a problem that goes unnoticed, and most women with PPD never receive any type of treatment. PPD is a treatable illness, and it is essential that we continue to educate ourselves and others about this important issue.

    For more information on PPD, visit us at The MGH Center for Women’s Mental Health
