Perinatal Support Washington (PS-WA) is a statewide non-profit committed to shining a light on perinatal mental health to support all families and communities. We believe all parents should receive appropriate, timely, and culturally relevant care from conception to baby's first birthday.

We envision a world that fully supports the emotional health of parents - making our families, communities, and care systems stronger.

Our toll-free telephone support "Warm Line" has been operating since 1991, providing peer support to parents in need. We partner with local organizations to provide free and low-cost new parent support groups, create or expand perinatal mental health programs, and advocate for change in Washington State. In 2020, we trained 900 health care providers in identification, assessment, and treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. We do all of this with the help of our dedicated staff, board, and volunteers.

We're seeking individuals who:

Have one or more of the following skills:

  • Fundraising
  • PR & Branding
  • Legal
  • Government Relations & Policy
  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI)

Bring the following perspectives:

  • Dads & LGBTQIA+ partners
  • Diverse racial or ethnic backgrounds
  • Diverse socio-economic backgrounds
  • Residency in Central or Eastern WA
