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 Oregon.

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.

Oregon Board Commitment Statement: The Oregon Chapter of Postpartum Support International is an inclusive, safe environment for volunteers to work collaboratively to advocate for all Oregon birthing persons and their families. We believe honesty, openness, focus, and vision can lead to actions that improve accessibility and availability of services for all children and families impacted by perinatal mental health. While we take this work seriously, we also understand that fostering fellowship and fun with each other can enhance our working relationships. We commit to working with each other from the heart with love, respect, and acceptance.

Become a PSI-OR 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.


PSI-OR offers scholarships for PSI perinatal mental health trainings and conferences.
