The Climb Out of the Darkness (COTD) is the world’s largest event raising funds and awareness for the mental health of new families operated by Postpartum Support International (PSI). The Climb is a community walk and international fundraiser for survivors, providers, and members of the community to come together to raise awareness for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
COTD brings our community together to shine a light on a darkness we often don’t speak about; that of Perinatal Mood and Anxiety disorders (PMADs), the most common complication of pregnancy and childbirth.
We share stories of hope and celebrate recovery as we gather together to raise money, raise awareness and give a voice to those who no longer have one and walk together to symbolize our ‘Climb’ Out of the Darkness. Our Climb in Fairfield County will support our state chapter of PSI.
