Postpartum Support International’s 2014


Second Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month Blog Hop!


2014 Theme:


Perinatal Mood Disorders: What Helped Me Recover: Self, Family & Community Resources



In May 2011 Postpartum Support International (PSI), declared May as Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month. An increasing number of states and counties have designated May as a time to bring awareness to maternal mental health. This year, we want to launch our first maternal mental health awareness month blog hop.


Our PSI blog hop is inclusive but also respectful of emotional safety and comfort and hope for all contributors and readers. To that end, we welcome your participation but also please keep in mind some editorial guidelines meant to promote comfort and safety ~~~


Editorial Guidelines:

  • Name: Include your real name, we don’t promote people with online disguises. Anonymity can be arranged.

  • Length: 500 – 1000 words

  • Keeping in this year’s theme: Perinatal Mood Disorders: What Helped Me Recover: Self, Family & Community Resources

  • Much appreciated are personal stories about the resources you used to support you in your recovery: your inner strength and resiliency efforts, family & friends who helped, and community resources you found along your healing path.


Potentially Triggering:


For the purpose of this blog hop and its focus on messages of recovery and hope, we want you to do your best to avoid common triggers in your posts. If you have any questions or concerns about that, please contact us at psioffice@postpartum.net and we can talk about your concerns.
