Let’s Talk about Postpartum Depression | Lisa Abramson | TEDxSantaCatalinaSchool

This video talk about raising awareness about postpartum depression and postpartum  psychosis. This video is amazing because Lisa Abramson talks about her personal experience with postpartum psychosis and explains how she managed to get her life back on track after being in a mental hospital. She mentions that one in seven women get postpartum depression yet there is very few awareness to this issue. New mothers need lots of care, help, and attention because they are the ones who dedicate all their time and energy to their little ones twenty four hours a day. She also mentions that self care is the most important thing women can do after giving birth. It is important that women do not suffer this issue alone because it can cause harm to yourself or others. She mentions that only 15% of women with postpartum depression ever receive professional treatment. Many women are suffering in silence because of shame and stigma associated with maternal mental health disorders. This video can be used for support and raise awareness of postpartum depression.
