Documentary Shines Light on Darkness of Postpartum Depression

What:  Startling new documentary on postpartum depression premieres in Salt Lake City.

Why:   Having a baby is supposed to be the happiest time in a woman’s life. Instead, for one in seven Utah women, postpartum depression makes the months -- and sometimes years -- after a woman gives birth a dark and dangerous time for mom and baby. This documentary shines a light on postpartum depression and encourages understanding of and treatment for this all-too-common condition.
Who:   A representative from the Utah Maternal Mental Health Collaborative                         
           A Utah mother affected by crippling postpartum depression
When:  Thursday, May 14, 7 p.m.

Where:  Salt Lake City Public Library
210 East 400 South, SLC, UT 84111

Note:    Because the theater doors will close at promptly 7:00 p.m., speakers will be available before the screening from 6:15 to 6:45 p.m.
