Postpartum Support Center (PPSC) is a community-based nonprofit organization founded in 2019 by a mother who severely suffered from maternal mental health complications in Marin County. Maternal Mental Health Disorders are a common public health problem with serious and long-lasting consequences for the entire family. Unfortunately, not just mothers are affected. Children are at increased risk for cognitive, emotional, and behavioral problems. PPSC provides free evidence-based programs and services concentrating on the well-being of women, their partners, children, and support teams, including:
Maternal Mental Health Peer Support Services: support line, peer counseling, support groups
ROSE (Reach Out Stay Strong Essentials for mothers of newborns): a program that prevents postpartum depression
Marin Diaper Bank: provides free diapers and other basic necessities to local children in need
PPSC provides information, resources, referrals, self-screening mental health assessments, and advocacy.
PPSC partners with local hospitals, clinics, local providers, and community organizations to bring our services to the perinatal families in need.
