PSI State Coordinators
PSI Coordinators are trained volunteers who provide support, encouragement, information, and resources by phone, text, or email and will help connect moms, dads, and families to local providers who are trained to treat perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Coordinators give encouragement, information, tips, and resources but not clinical, medical, legal, or religious advice. They are here to help all families navigate through the transition to parenthood. For more information, click here.
