Dear parents, providers, friends and advocates,
This is my third year participating in Postpartum Support International's Climb Out of the Darkness. As many of you know, I have been dedicated to addressing maternal mental health complications through my work in Nurturing Families UConn Health and my volunteer work with PSI CT. It is imperative that we continue to raise awareness about the impact of Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders so that prevention and treatment are available to every family during pregnancy, postpartum and early parenting. Please come to the West Hartford Reservoir on Saturday June 22, 2019 at 9am for the Climb Out of the Darkness West Hartford event. It is not necessary to donate to the Climb to participate! I would rather see you and walk with you than have a donation but of course you are most welcome to donate in lieu of or in addition to participating in the walk.
If you have questions, please email me at Maternalmentalhealtheducator@gmail.com
Yours in peripartum wellness,
Jen Vendetti, LMSW
