On June 20th, 2015, is a worldwide hike to raise awareness of postpartum depression.
"Climb Out of the Darkness is held on, or near, the longest day of the year annually to help shine the most light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The event features mothers and others across the globe joining together to climb mountains and hike trails to represent their symbolic rise out of the darkness of maternal mental illness and into the light of hope and recovery".
At FIT4MOM, we are profoundly passionate about supporting moms and inspiring them to a life of health and confidence in all of our programs. This event is such a powerful way to take part in this movement towards awareness and better treatment for moms in need.
Whether or not you have been personally affected by PPD, we encourage you to find a hike near you. Side by side, let's Climb Out of the Darkness together!
