What We Do
We provide support and referrals for treatment through our "warmline," which is staffed by trained volunteers. The warmline takes messages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The warmline can be reached at 619-254-0023.
We offer a referral list of health care providers who are members of PHA and have committed to keeping up with PPD prevention, diagnosis and treatment updates. We publish a newsletter for members and maintain this website as a resource for mothers, families and professionals. In addition, you can visit our page on Facebook and find useful information and engaging stories on our blog at postpartumhealthalliance.blogspot.com.
We are indebted to First Five Commission, which provided initial funding for our brochure. We are grateful also to Laura Galinson, of Price-Galinson Charities, who has served as our guide through the world of philanthropy.
Our thanks also to Lisa Druxman, founder of Stroller Strides (strollerstrides.com), for everything she and her staff do to support new mothers -- and to bring in funds to our growing organization.
