• Climb Out the Darkness - Detroit 2020

    Climb Out of the Darkness® is the world’s largest event, raising funds and awareness for maternal mental illnesses, such as postpartum depression and anxiety. This year we honor the courageous women and their families on June 22nd, who have climbed out of the darkness or are still struggling with a maternal mental health issue.

    Please join us as moms, partners and families, medical and mental health professionals, advocates, community members who want to ‘shed light’ on these very common and treatable struggles new mothers and partners can face.

     We hope that you will join us in supporting the mental health of all new families. Check out the lineup:
