Help us celebrate 10 years of building community and bringing light to the darkness of perinatal mental health disorders. 

The Climb Out of the Darkness is the world's largest event raising funds and awareness for the mental health of new families operated by Postpartum Support International. The Climb is a community walk and international fundraiser for survivors, providers, and members of the community to come together. 

Funds raised by Team DuPage will support Mom2Mom Downers Grove, a local peer-to-peer support group for new moms impacted by Perinatal Mood Disorders, and the Illinois Chapter of Postpartum Support International as it provides resources for families and training for professional providers supporting families in the perinatal period.


Raising awareness for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, The Climb brings our community together to shine a light on a darkness we often don't speak about. Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are the most common complication of pregnancy and childbirth. 


We share stories of hope and celebrate recovery as we gather together to raise money, raise awareness and give a voice to those who no longer have one and walk together to symbolize our 'Climb' Out of the Darkness.

We provide direct peer support to families, train professionals, and provide a bridge to connect them.
