Introducing Our Community Essay Campaign: “Journey to Motherhood”

PSI-CT wants parents to know that there are many journeys to parenthood, each with their unique challenges. As we work to increase awareness of these challenges, we invite you to share your own journey.

If you experienced/are experiencing a PMAD (Perinatal Mood/Anxiety Disorder), please include whether you sought help in a support group or what other resources were helpful to you.

Essays will be posted on our website to help raise awareness of PMADs and remind parents they are not alone in their struggles. We thank you for being brave enough to share your story.

If you are interested in submitting an essay for consideration, please review the submission guidelines below and submit your piece to Sharon at We look forward to hearing from you!

For submissions between 700 and 1200 words, please follow these Blog Post Guidelines.

For submissions longer than 1200 words, please follow these Essay Guidelines.
