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

*This program is not for people who are currently in crisis or have suicidal ideation. If you need immediate help, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 988 or the National Maternal Mental Health Hotline 1-833-TLC-MAMA (852-6262)

To see if you are eligible for the Peer Mentor Program, please connect with a Care Coordinator.
