Perinatal Mood Disorders Documentary: Bitter Milk

AHP readers may be interested in the short documentary Bitter Milk available now on YouTube:

Bitter Milk is a documentary about perinatal mood disorders (PMD) which silently affect most of the society, directly or indirectly, and still not much understood. This film is about the heart wrenching journey of a mother with postnatal mood disorder through a four seasons of period, accompanied by the comments of other affected women and experts. It combines science, history and the traditions on PMD. The aim of this documentary is to raise awareness of the rest of the society so that they can spot the disorder, understand it and help the women to access the expert help.

Thanks to our friends at H-Madness for bringing this to our attention.
