Movie Night
“Dark Side of the Full Moon”
Please stay for a special showing of this important film on postpartum depression.  Two women, Jennifer Silliman and Maureen Fura, both with firsthand knowledge of this challenge, came together to give a face and voice to the countless women who suffer in silence.  With the help of Dr. Shoshana Bennett, Executive Producer, they produced a documentary film, uncovering disconnects within the medical community to effectively screen, refer, and treat these women.
