"I wish someone had told me what to expect. I wish someone had talked about what they went through, or directed me toward finding out what other women went through, so that I didn't feel so utterly crazy."

Why use the support line?

You don't have to figure this out on your own.  Our Warm Line was started by parents who never wanted another parent to feel alone and not know what to do.  We can help make a plan, find resources, share our stories, and just listen.

Our Warm Line offers free telephone support for all parents and their family members. The line is staffed by parents who have experienced a perinatal mood and/or anxiety disorder and have recovered fully or licensed therapists with specialized training in perinatal mental health.

We provide warm, understanding, effective and private support. We also provide professional referrals and information about other resources in your community. Call or text today, 1-888-404-7763 or request a call back.

Request a call back.

We promise to reach out within the next 24 hours.
