I have begun to use Twitter http://twitter.com/elainehanzak as another way to make connections and spread awareness and reduce stigma around postnatal illness.
Last night I did a topic search on postpartum depression to pick up US links. I was thrilled to find this link which informed me that my American contact Diana Lynn Barnes, who wrote the foreword for my book, has won a Lifetime Achievement Award for her work in this area.

Well done Diana!
In addition I had a look around the excellent blog from which this link came - Postpartum Progress.
Have a look around! It's got a wealth of useful information.
