Climb Out of the Darkness® is the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illnesses like pregnancy or postpartum depression and anxiety. Events are held on or near the longest day of the year to help shine the most light on these illnesses – Saturday, June 23, 2018.
Join an Existing Climb

The event features mothers, fathers, and others across the globe joining together to climb mountains and hike trails to represent their symbolic rise out of the darkness of perinatal mental health crises and into the light of hope and recovery.

Across our state of Georgia, help us shine the light of hope with our words and advocacy so that our fellow mothers and fathers receive better information and better treatment, and new families will get off to the healthy and strong start they deserve.

Our goal is to have Climbs in all regions across GA. We are excited to announce a Climb Leader Training program to help each Climb Leader host a successful event.
