If you have questions about PPD, either because you are concerned about yourself or a loved one, or want to know more as a provider, there is a wonderful free service offered by Postpartum Support International.  You can talk with a PPD expert about resources, symptoms, options and general information about perinatal mood disorders from the privacy of your own home, thanks to toll-free informational sessions.   You won't need to pre-register or even give your name, if it's important to you to remain anonymous. These sessions are held on Wednesdays at either 3pm or 9pm EST.  Dad Chat sessions are on Monday nights.  They are limited to the first 15 callers. For the call schedule and access codes you'll need to participate, visit www.postpartum.net or call 1-800-944-4773
