Wow! What a great evening! Nearly 200 friends and supporters of the Task Force gathered at the Taglyan Cultural Center in Hollywood to honor and celebrate women and men who are speaking up about maternal depression on Sunday October 28th. A very big thank you to our honorees – Madeleine Brand, Joy Burkhard and Kurt Streeter – for their courage, passion and dedication to raising awareness and reducing the stigma around perinatal mood and anxiety disorders so that all families can thrive.

An added plus? The evening raised more than $40,000 to support the Task Force's training, technical assistance, policy and public awareness programs. A huge thank you to all who attended and/or made a donation to the Task Force! We could not carry out this important work without your support.

For those who would like to relive the evening, please check out photos from the event. (Thank you to Cynthia Olkie of Fleur de Lis Photography, our ace photographer!).

We are looking forward to celebrating with you again next year!
