There is a new organization in our community that helps women that have Postpartum Depression and Anxiety called Mommy's HopeLine. If anyone needs help they provide referrals, support groups, homevisits, and case management. It is Strictly Confidential. The telephone number is (718) 252-6034.
Don't feel that you have to suffer in silence because there is help that is free of charge.

For New Jersey mothers there are a lot of resources available. A new state law was passed that went into effect in October 2006 - which requires OB/GYN's to educate mothers about postpartum depression and to screen for it - both before and after delivery. Therefore, many hospitals have set up their own screening programs. In addition, there is a state initiation called "Speak Up When You're Down" - which provides information and referrals.. They have a 24/7 hot line: 1-800-328-3838 and their website address is www.njspeakup.gov ( this is funded by the state of new jersey).

Also - there are organizations that provide information online. One of the largest is Postpartum Support International - they provide information and articles on a variety of topics. Hope this helps.
