Walk for re­pro­duc­tive men­tal health

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - HEALTH/COMMUNITY -

A large group filled the Char­lot­te­town wa­ter­front dur­ing the re­cent sec­ond an­nual Climb out of the Dark­ness Walk.

The walk started last year as a way to raise aware­ness on the few re­sources and lack of ac­cess sur­round­ing re­pro­duc­tive men­tal health, with the goal of even­tu­ally hav­ing ac­cess for all preg­nant women and new moth­ers who have anx­i­ety dis­or­ders. The Char­lot­te­town event was also part of an in­ter­na­tional ef­fort that as­sists the non-profit group, Post­par­tum Progress, which sup­ports preg­nant women and new moth­ers, as well as those who’ve ex­pe­ri­enced a mis­car­riage, still­birth or in­fant loss.
