Connect with a Peer Mentor
Talk to someone who has “lived experience” with PMADs
Connect with Someone who has Been There Too
PSVa’s peer mentors are volunteers and staff who have firsthand experience with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. As survivors, they understand the struggle and the path to wellness, and want to offer support, encouragement, and information.
However, volunteers are NOT medical professionals, so they cannot offer medical information or screening. A peer mentor is a great addition to mental health treatment.
Peer Mentors Provide:
- Non-judgmental listening
- Understanding, acceptance, support, and encouragement
- Suggestions for self-care
- General resources about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders
- Local resources
