"Our goal is to increase awareness, identification, treatment and support of PMADs (Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders) in Georgia, while also reducing the stigma."
Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) are the most common complication of childbirth.  In the United States, between 10% and 15% of new  mothers suffer from these devastating illnesses which, if not properly treated, can have a long-term negative impact on the health of the mothers, children and families. 

In Georgia alone, over 30,000 pregnant and postpartum women are likely to experience a PMAD.  During pregnancy and the postpartum period, when mothers expect to feel elated, they instead experience feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fatigue, decreased  concentration, suicidality, depressed mood, loss of interest and other symptoms.
