CVMC is proud to sponsor central Vermont's Climb Out of the Darkness® event on June 15, organized by Good Beginnings of Central VT and coordinated worldwide by Postpartum Support International.

Have you or a loved one experienced a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder (PMAD) like postpartum depression? You are not alone! Together, we will honor those who have experienced PMADS and shine a light on the fact that these disorders are the most common complication of childbirth - and often go undiagnosed.

Climb Out of the Darkness, coordinated by Postpartum Support International, is the largest awareness-raising event devoted to perinatal mental health. We climb to support each other, raise awareness, build community, and raise money for Good Beginnings’ unique and critical work supporting Central Vermont families during the perinatal period and throughout the transition to parenthood.

Meet at 10AM on the State House Lawn and then join a community walk on the bike path to the Peace Park and back to the State House to enjoy the Self Care Tent.
