As a non-profit, charitable organization, Pacific Post Partum Support Society provides a variety of free or low-cost programs for mothers experiencing a difficult pregnancy or postpartum adjustment, including postpartum depression and anxiety (PPD/A). We offer a range of services, depending on individual’s needs. In the year 2015-16 our staff made and received a total of 9,278 calls and emails, including 3,500 support calls for new and expecting mothers, and many informational calls and emails to their families and community and service care providers. We also have trained telephone support volunteers who speak other languages to support mothers in their first language if requested: Cantonese, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish (regular staff also offer Punjabi and Farsi).
Our programs are funded by government contracts, community and foundation grants, and individual donors. In light of limited government/grant funding and an ever-increasing demand for our services, your support is needed now more than ever.
