Thank you to all the participants of the Inaugural 

Long Island Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders Screening Day

Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are common health concerns for many expectant or new mothers. However, the majority of women suffering from these medical illnesses go unrecognized and untreated.

On Saturday, May 2, 2015, the Long Island Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders Collaborative of the Postpartum Resource Center of New York, held the inaugural Long Island Screening Day for Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders Awareness event. Over 1,000 families were reached as a result of our efforts for the first ever Long Island Screening Day for Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders Awareness!

Our goal of the event was to raise awareness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and to prove how easy and effective screening can be. We staged screeners at various public locations where new moms frequent.

Thank you to the Long Island Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders Collaborative Partners, the sixty Screening Day volunteers, Screening Day team leaders, event location hosts, our sponsors, and the Long Island Community for making this event a success!

Help us to continue to Ask the Question. Ask a mom or dad-to-be or a new parent "How are you doing?", "How are you feeling?" Hear their answer... Let them know they are not alone. There is help and hope.
