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.

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.

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


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.

“I am honored to serve the women and families of Kentucky.  We are gathering a network of providers and advocates who are creating changes across our community. You are not alone in this journey. ”


Jennifer Sanders, MA, LPP

Interim Liaison

After becoming a mama in 2012, I fell in love with the “hood” of motherhood.  After more than a decade of working with children and families, I quickly realized that I could pair my love for psychology and motherhood and use it to help others.   In April of 2017, I began a private practice in Louisville specializing in perinatal mental health, including PMADs as well as pregnancy and infant loss.   I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and have been trained in the treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) by Postpartum Support International, as a postpartum doula by DONA International, and in lactation counseling. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to serve on PSI-KY’s Board to increase awareness, advocacy, resources, and services in our community.

“Pregnancy, childbirth and caring for a newborn is hard. I want all moms, birthing persons and their families to know they are not alone; that their struggles matter and that we are here to help. I’m honored to be part of the PSI family and serve our Kentucky community.”

“I fully believe that parenting is the hardest job anyone can take on, even under the most ideal of circumstances.  When those circumstance are less than ideal, when there are complications, mental health struggles, isolation, etc. it can feel exponentially more overwhelming.  We were never meant to parent alone; it takes a village to raise a child and to raise a mama!  Sometimes it can be hard to ask for help, I have found it to be one of the bravest things that we can do for both ourselves and our kiddos.”

“After I struggled in my postpartum journey, I knew I wanted to be able to help others during this chapter of their lives. How I would have wanted the maternal mental health support that PSI offers! But, I now know where to turn to in the future. I sought out the PMH-C training to be able to serve families in the Southcentral Kentucky area. Fueled with maternal mental health knowledge, I joined PSI KY to be an advocate of statewide change.”


Clare Kerrick

Member At-Large

Survivor and Advocate

“After my own experience with postpartum depression and anxiety, I knew that I wanted to help others who are struggling. In my volunteer position as a coordinator, I’ve encountered many people who felt the same way I did- afraid, alone, and ashamed. I feel so grateful to be able to collaborate with a wonderful group of people to spread awareness about postpartum mental health and increase resources across the commonwealth. I believe that together we can create a community that allows for future generations to come forward and receive the care they deserve.”
