Postpartum Support International


Postpartum Support International (PSI) is the world’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to helping those suffering from perinatal mood disorders, the most common complication of childbirth.

Our Mission is to increase awareness, education, prevention, and treatment of perinatal mental health issues affecting individuals, their families, and support systems in all areas of Iowa.

Our Vision is that all pregnant and postpartum individuals and their families, including those from underserved communities, will have access to perinatal support, mental health/healthcare providers, education, and resources to improve overall well-being through advocacy, training, and increased awareness of perinatal mental health.

All memberships are tax-deductible.

Become a PSI-IA Volunteer

There are many ways to help and volunteer with PSI, and we would love to have you join us. All are welcome at PSI! Survivors, mental health professionals, doulas, clinicians, and anyone else interested and passionate about raising awareness about perinatal mental health can volunteer through the chapter in order to give back to their local communities.

PSI Chapters are made up of a variety of local advocates and stakeholders who further the mission of PSI on a grassroots level. Chapters work on a wide range of initiatives that they develop based on their communities needs. While some chapters may focus on passing legislation, others may create a robust network of peer support groups, and all chapters provide scholarships for PSI trainings and events.

Contact the Chapter to find out about volunteer opportunities near you. Explore other volunteer opportunities on the PSI website.


Thanks to everyone who generously participated in fundraising, we are pleased to announce we are offering scholarships for perinatal mental health trainings offered in 2023.

Applicants must serve residents of IA for consideration. Priority will be given to people of color and providers who accept Medicaid. Scholarships will be applied to event registration only (not transportation, etc.). Please apply for a scholarship before completing event registration. Scholarship awards will be distributed as a reimbursement after you provide evidence of completing the training. If you are awarded a scholarship and are unable to cover the upfront costs of registering for a training, please communicate directly with a PSI-IA Board Member, and we can work out an alternate way to distribute your award.

If you have questions please contact us:
