On October 29, a new movie about postpartum depression and maternal suicide was released in 800 theaters around the country. A Mouthful of Air is a powerful movie addressing an important public health crisis. Recognizing this is not typical Hollywood subject matter, we commend the filmmakers for tackling these important topics, and hope that the movie will raise awareness about maternal mental health, draw attention to the vulnerabilities of new parents, and potentially save lives. Pregnant and postpartum parents may be inadvertently triggered by the film’s evocative nature and story arc, and we encourage sharing these resources.
