How can I get help/support for postpartum depression?

You may wish to consult the Depression page of NAMI’s website where you will find information on the condition, current treatments, ways to support recovery, and links to NAMI Discussion Groups that focus on topics related to Depression.

The following, additional postpartum depression-specific resources may be of help:
