Jenny’s Light was founded fourteen years ago following the death of Jenny and Graham on December 19, 2007. Our mission was to improve & save lives by increasing awareness of all perinatal mood disorders, including postpartum depression. We have merged our efforts and fundraising with San Francisco Bay Area based Supporting Mamas . Please help us continue to shine a light on maternal mental health. Thank you for your support!
