Dark Side of the Full Moon (YCMF) - Mental Illness Awareness
Having a baby is supposed to be the happiest time of your life. But what if it’s not? Each year, 1.3 million women in the U. S. struggle to find support and treatment for postpartum depression and other perinatal mood disorders. This film gives a face and a voice to the countless women who suffer in silence. It also uncovers disconnects within the medical community to effectively screen, refer, and treat these women.
Mental Health America of Greater Houston, its partners and experts Elisabeth Netherton, MD, Sherry Duson, MA, LPC-S, LMFT-S and Kirsten von Aulock, LMSW presented a special Mental Illness Awareness Week event focused on Postpartum Depression on October 8th at United Way of Greater Houston.
