Free Chat With an Expert from Postpartum Support International

Wednesday Chats for Women and First Monday Chats for Men

Postpartum Support International hosts free, live phone sessions every week, including Wednesday chats for moms and Monday chats for dads. During these sessions you can talk with a PSI expert about resources, symptoms, options and general information about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders from the privacy of your own phone. There is no need to pre-register or give your name. These sessions, facilitated by licensed mental health professionals, are informational only and open to anyone with questions and concerns. Limited to the first 15 callers.

Please note: The bridge line will stop accepting callers when the maximum of 15 callers has been reached. Sessions will last approximately one hour. These Chats are not meant to take the place of needed visits to healthcare providers and do not provide therapy.
