Pregnancy & Postpartum Psychosis 
PPP Awareness Day

Join us in our efforts on May 3, 2024, to address the most severe of perinatal mood disorders, perinatal psychosis (PPP), on our 4th annual Pregnancy & Postpartum Psychosis Awareness Day.

Pregnancy & Postpartum Psychosis Awareness Day, the first US-based awareness campaign specific to perinatal psychosis, is happening May 3, 2024. We are undertaking a significant fundraising effort and seek financial support from community partners like you.

We seek to raise awareness, educate, prevent trauma, and provide support for perinatal psychosis survivors, their families, the community and medical professionals. We believe that together, we can save lives.

Awareness is crucial for saving lives, preventing trauma, and aiding recovery.

Pregnancy and Postpartum Psychosis (PPP), also known as postpartum psychosis, is a rare but serious mental health condition that can affect women during pregnancy or shortly after giving birth. This condition is characterized by a rapid onset of severe mental health symptoms, including hallucinations, delusions, extreme mood swings, and confusion. Individuals and healthcare providers must recognize the early warning signs of PPP, seek prompt medical attention, and provide comprehensive support to ensure the well-being of affected individuals and their families.

While the exact cause of PPP is not fully understood, certain risk factors, such as a personal or family history of bipolar disorder or previous episodes of postpartum psychosis, may increase the likelihood of developing this condition. It is estimated that one or two in every thousand perinatal women experience PPP in the United States.
