PSI of WA is changing our name.
Our warm line, support groups, trainings, materials, and other services are aimed at lifting the veil on mood and anxiety disorders throughout the perinatal period and treating them effectively. The perinatal period includes the entire childbearing year--not just postpartum. We know that many women experience emotional challenges beginning in pregnancy that continue into the postpartum period. Pregnancy is an important time to support parents' emotional health. Doing so can impact mom's and baby's health and mental health during pregnancy and postpartum. So we are changing our name to Perinatal Support WA. Stay tuned for the launch of our brand new website, and new brochures that reflect these exciting changes.
