Postpartum Support International’s 2013

First Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month Blog Hop!

Theme: Recovery and Coping Skills

In May 2011 Postpartum Support International (PSI), declared May as Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month. An increasing number of states and counties have designated May as a time to bring awareness to maternal mental health. This year, we want to launch our first maternal mental health awareness month blog hop.

Our PSI blog hop is meant to be inclusive and is also meant to promote emotional safety and comfort and hope for all contributors and readers. To that end, we welcome your participation but also please keep in mind some editorial guidelines meant to promote comfort and safety ~

Editorial Guidelines:

  • Name: Include your real name, we don’t promote people with online disguises
  • Length: 500 – 1000 words
  • Keeping in this year’s theme, much appreciated are personal stories about recovery from pregnancy and postpartum mental health challenges and coping skills used to maintain that recovery.

Potentially Triggering:

For the purpose of this blog hop and its focus on messages of recovery and hope, we want you to do your best to avoid common triggers in your posts. If you have any questions or concerns about that, please contact us at psioffice@postpartum.net and we can talk about your concerns.

Please do not write about detailed suicidal or homicidal thoughts and feelings.

 Inclusive:

Editors will not tolerate any negativity directed towards individuals or groups
