What is Climb Out of the Darkness®?
Climb Out of the Darkness® is the world’s largest event raising awareness of perinatal mental illness, including pregnancy and postpartum depression, anxiety, OCD, psychosis and post-traumatic stress. The event is run by the nonprofit Postpartum Support International every year on or near the summer solstice (the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere). Teams and their supporters gather to climb out of the darkness by walking, climbing, or hiking together to help shine the most light on perinatal mental illness and to raise funds to support the fight against PMADs.
