Started in 2010, the Jackson Hole Perinatal Advocacy Project provides a spectrum of outreach, education, and support for medical providers, women and their families in regards to pregnancy and postpartum mental health issues. Activities include community presentations and a referral line for expecting and new parents experiencing perinatal anxiety and mood disorders.

An estimated one in eight women suffer from a perinatal mood disorder, and 80% go undiagnosed and untreated. Perinatal means the period “all around” birth, the period of time all throughout pregnancy as well as the baby’s first year.
