Group Name: Peel Postpartum Mood Disorder Program
Description: The Peel Postpartum Mood Disorder Program aims to build the community’s capacity to respond to families at risk for or experiencing postpartum mood disorder (PMD). Many women experiencing PMD don’t receive the support they need as it often goes undetected and undiagnosed. Service providers play a key role in recognizing the symptoms of PMD and referring families to the appropriate resources. Their website provides education, skill development and useful resources for service providers and families in the Region of Peel.
Treatments vary and include counselling, support, medication, therapy, and self-care. Mild to moderate PMD may respond to counselling and increased support, often found through joining a support group or through help from her partner and family.
