I’ve mentioned a few times since I started this blog two months ago how this year PPD Support HI has been receiving more moms mentioning agency referrals than calls from moms initially searching for “Hellllp!”. Um, yes, after writing about this a 2nd or 3rd time it finally clicked.

Last October’s Mental Health America of Hawaii’s Marya Grambs hosted a brown bag event all about postpartum mood disorders. At least 80 people attended, from numerous agencies. That’s where the referrals were generated.

So this thanks comes from me and from the moms who end up calling PPD Support HI or at their support group, relieved to find others who understand and with whom they can talk about the not-always-happy side of new parenthood. THANK YOU, MARYA!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
