Today for Veteran’s Day, I would like to send out my heartfelt thanks to the many brave men and women who serve this country, as well as their families back at home. Military moms rock!
As a civilian, it’s impossible for me to truly understand the pressure and stress of being in the military, or married to a service person. But over the years, I’ve watched a best friend live the military life with young kids and a husband on multiple deployments. So many make these sacrifices to protect our country, and I am in awe and very grateful.
Mental health and suicide prevention are vital topics for this important community. The suicide rates are high. The incidents of PTSD and postpartum illness increased. So today I am over at Postpartum Progress offering Support for Military Moms with Postpartum Mood Disorders, and their loved ones.
