Welcome

Support Perinatal Mental Health initiatives in Waterloo Region. Climb Out of the Darkness is the world’s largest event raising funds and awareness for the mental health of new families, operated by Postpartum Support International.

2021 will mark the first Climb Out of the Darkness in Waterloo Region. Lead by Lisette Weber – postpartum doula, and Catherine Mellinger – Expressive Arts Therapist and lead artist of Post-Part, this walk is a project steeped in parenting connection, and a deep belief that we can expand the reach of services in Waterloo Region.

The Climb Out of the Darkness Waterloo Region is partnered with Post-Part, an inter-arts exhibition which will be installed in downtown Kitchener for May and June of 2021. The Post-Part exhibition will mark the walking path for those COTD participants who would like to take on a physical outdoor walking experience as part of this event.

All those who donate to Climb Out of the Darkness Waterloo Region will receive updates on the walk, including the walking map of Post-Part.
