We are a Reproductive Mental Health and Emotional Support Services volunteer group serving Linn and Benton counties in Oregon. Our client services include both support services and referrals for mental health treatment. We offer support groups and referrals for counseling in Corvallis, OR. We provide free phone and email support to pregnant and postpartum women and their families.
Some of our clients only need one supportive phone conversation or resources emailed to them. Others attend our support groups for weeks or months, or use services through our counseling/ psychotherapy referrals. We also work with women whom we refer for psychiatric medication management or who need psychiatric hospitalization. In these cases we can keep contact with the providers and the client while she is in the hospital, and help coordinate a thorough follow-up plan, including both support services and mental health treatment.

If this sounds like you, you are not alone.
About 10-20% of women suffer from depression, anxiety or other distressing emotional reactions during pregnancy or after childbirth. This translates to about 800,000 mothers a year in the U.S. Many women struggle with similar symptoms after a miscarriage, a still birth, losing a baby, around their menstrual cycle, when dealing with infertility, or around menopause. Though hormonal changes are often not a factor, around the time of adopting a baby or older child, a parent can experience significant emotional distress. Even men deal with such difficulties. Most women (and nearly all men) do not receive proper support for these difficulties, or treatment for these conditions.
You should not be one of them!
