Pregnancy and postpartum Mood Disorders (PPMD) affect 10 to 20% of all mothers
and about 10% of fathers. You are not alone. Help is available. You can get well.

MI Statewide PMD Coalition aspires to bring together families, communities, and professionals working to support families during pregnancy, pregnancy loss, and the postpartum period.

You may be worried that you or someone you care about is suffering from a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder such as postpartum depression. It can be very confusing, challenging and even painful to watch your spouse, family member or friend react to becoming a parent in ways that you didn’t expect. Please know that you have come to the right place for help.
