About Our Non-profit Organizations:
About PPDA
The Postpartum Depression Awareness Project is a non-profit organization I started to raise awareness for postpartum depression. Having been through postpartum depression twice myself I have experienced how difficult it is to find help. My goal for PPDA is not only to raise awareness nation wide but also to inform on the subject of PPD. I am working to make help easier to find with a Resource Website I built which endeavours to list all of the resources available for PPD in central Alberta. This is just the beginning, there is so much more to come and I need your support!
For more information on how funds raised for PPDA will be used please visit Goals for Funding.
