I've made zero secret that I dealt with postpartum depression after the now 13-year old's birth. I even wrote a book about it. My hometown now has a foundation dedicated to education and research about postpartum depression -- and may even be successful with positioning itself as a center of research. And while that's laudable and a cause I'll support, it's a shame we didn't move quickly enough to prevent Alexis Joy D'Achille's death in the first place. While we're getting better about talking about mental illness, we still have a long, long way to go.


Keep the conversation going. It is important. Thanks for being so public about your experiences. It can only help others.
