Friday, June 7th, 2019

Waters Edge Counseling Teen Therapy Children Therapists

When the heat rises outside, something rises in us too. Not only are our children getting hot, but we find ourselves as parents struggling to keep our own cool.

The summer is a time to relax, yet it is a challenge to keep our children happy and content. Being around one another all day can make tension rise between us and our children, but it does not have to be this way.

Click here to read about some ways that you can help your children and in turn help yourself to manage “hot” moods and stay calm.

(Postpartum Depression Savannah) Climb out of the Darkness 2019 event

Tuesday, June 4th, 2019

Up to 1 in 7 women experiences depression after her baby’s birth — making it one of the most common complications of pregnancy.

To raise awareness of postpartum depression and maternal mental health, the Climb out of the Darkness 2019 event in Savannah will be held on June 22 2019 in Lake Mayer. Held on or near the longest day of the year, this annual walk helps shine the most light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) such as postpartum depression and anxiety.

The walk also is to support Georgia’s chapter of Postpartum Support International (PSI), which is the ​leading​ organization dedicated to supporting women who experience PMADs.

Money raised is used to fund PSI Georgia Chapter, which promotes awareness, prevention and treatment of maternal health issues related to childbearing in the state of Georgia.

Last year, the Savannah team helped the state of Georgia raise over $20,000 via donations, which was more than any other state raised. Savannah’s was one of 13 Climbs in Georgia.

An example of this money in action: PSI GA hosted a 2-day maternal mental health training in May in Macon for over 125 providers who work with moms.
