CO-PSI Launches The Birth Squad Denver

We’re excited to announce a new initiative from the Colorado Chapter of Postpartum Support International: The Birth Squad!

Experiencing emotional distress during pregnancy or after the birth of a baby is extremely common. It can make you feel sad, stressed out, worried, and wonder if things will ever get better or if anyone else understands.

Beginning to share your feelings, worries, and experiences can feel overwhelming. Trying to find a therapist can sometimes feel impossible. However, help and support are available. Right here, right now.

The Birth Squad Denver and your community are here for you.

We offer two types of support groups in the Denver area and affinity support group spaces for Black and Latino/a moms and birthing people in English and Spanish. Babies are welcome at both groups!

I might be interested. How do I get involved?

It’s easy! The first step is setting up a 20 minute call with one of our team members so that we can learn more about you, your family, what you need, and how we can help. We also want to answer any questions you have. We’ll make it easy – we promise.

CO-PSI lanza Compañeros de Parto Denver

Nos complace anunciar una nueva iniciativa del Capítulo de Colorado de Postpartum Support International: ¡Compañeros de Parto!

Experimentar un malestar emocional durante el embarazo o después del nacimiento de un bebé es algo muy común. Puede hacer que te sientas triste, estresada, preocupada y que te preguntes si las cosas mejorarán alguna vez o si alguien entiende.

Comenzar a compartir sus sentimientos, preocupaciones y experiencias puede resultar abrumador. A veces, intentar encontrar un terapeuta puede parecer imposible. Sin embargo, existe la ayuda y apoyo disponibles. Aquí y ahora.

Compañeros de Parto de Denver y su comunidad están aquí para usted.

Ofrecemos dos tipos de grupos en la comunidad de Denver y también ofrecemos espacios para grupos de apoyo en inglés y español para madres negras y latino/as y personas que dan a luz. ¡Los bebés son bienvenidos en ambos grupos!

Me puede interesar. ¿Cómo puedo participar?

¡Es muy fácil! El primer paso es programar una llamada de 20 minutos con uno de los miembros de nuestro equipo para que podamos saber más sobre usted, su familia, lo que necesita y cómo podemos ayudarle. También queremos responder a cualquier pregunta que tenga. Lo haremos fácil – lo prometemos.

Did you know that perinatal mood disorders (PMDs) are the number one medical complication of childbirth? While often referred to as postpartum depression or even simply as postpartum, PMD can take many forms and can also occur during pregnancy. Perinatal mood disorders include depression, anxiety, OCD, panic disorder, PTSD, and (much more rarely) psychosis.

Volunteer

PSI state chapters are made up of a variety of local stakeholders and further the mission of PSI on a grassroots level. Chapters work on a wide range of initiatives that they dictate for themselves because they know their states best! While some states may focus on passing legislation, others may create a robust network of peer support groups, or compile a state-wide list of perinatal mood disorder providers and resources.

All are welcome at PSI! Survivors, mental health professionals, doulas, clinicians etc. volunteer through the chapter in order to give back to their local communities. We work to reduce stigma, increase awareness, and provide connections to resources.

Climb Out Of The Darkness

Every year, PSI hosts Climb Out Of The Darkness, a movement that invites people from all over the world to host local walks and events to spread awareness of mental health challenges of new families. A Climb can be as simple as a play-date in a park, a hike, or a more elaborate event. The majority of Climbs are held in June, near the summer solstice in celebration of long sunny days and a family’s climb from anxiety and depression to recovery.

2022 Colorado Climbs:

    We gather as a community to walk and socialize. We meet fellow survivors, supporters & providers.

    #climbout

    Host a Climb

    We are looking for Climb Leaders to host events in your state. Leaders will go through a quick training, and will have the support of other climb leaders, your state chapter and PSI staff.  Learn More.
