Postpartum psychosis survivor Mary Howorth has shared with me that she has been working with members of the Illinois state legislature to get postpartum depression legislation passed to require perinatal mood disorder screening. The bill, called the Postpartum Mood Disorders Prevention Act, has finally been introduced by state Senator Don Harmon (D). (If you click on the link and then click on full text, you can read it in its entirety.) It also has a new co-sponsor, Illinois Senator Jacqueline Y. Collins (D). Let's hope it gets passed! Residents of Illinois, please contact your local representatives! Thank you, Mary.
