Many thanks for the heads up from Genara about the PPD storyline on the NBC sitcom "Scrubs". I like to keep track of mentions of postpartum depression in the media.

In the upcoming episode this Thursday, January 11 (9pm EST), Carla, one of the main characters (played by Judy Reyes), is struggling to admit that she may have postpartum depression and Turk (played by Donald Faison) encourages her to seek help. Even though Scrubs is a hit comedy on NBC, I have been assured by NBC Entertainment Sr. Press Manager Tracy St. Pierre that the subject of postpartum depression is taken very seriously in the storyline. Good for them for helping to provide more awareness on this issue!!!! Be sure to tune in, Ladies!
