Each year in the United States, 
over 400,000 new mothers 
suffer from severe postpartum 
depression (PPD).




KBHC launched the PPD Moms Project in April 2003. We kicked off this program with a dedication by Marie Osmond and was the only resource listed by Brooke Shields in her landmark book about PPD "Down Came The Rain".

The goals of this project are to make screening new mothers for PPD a routine part of prenatal and postnatal care and provide peer guidance to treatment and support.

For further information and PPD resources,
call 1-800-PPD-MOMS.
