Welcome FOZA Fans and thank you for joining in on a NEW FOZA PODCAST – This is Episode 32.
We appreciate you. Each time you tune into a podcast or share a link, you are taking action that helps strengthen our efforts to raise awareness of maternal mental health.
So, thanks again so very much for your continued support.
Today, we have with us Susan Aquayo, CEO and President of Kassy’s Kause; a 501c3 organization dedicated to spreading the awareness of perinatal depression that can be experienced during pregnancy.
The birth of Kassy’s Kause stemmed from the sudden and tragic death of Susan’s daughter, Kassandra A. Williams, who died by suicide …related to perinatal depression.
We focus a lot on postpartum depression, but in this episode, we want to place our attention on the effects of not recognizing and treating perinatal depression and how devastating it can be when not properly diagnosed and left untreated.
Please join in and see why "No One is Immune" and the ways Kassy's Kause helps families that may be experiencing perinatal depression or PPD

This month’s episode centers around timing. FOZA is some guidelines specifically geared towards three groups in our audience
1.) Moms and pregnant people who may not be aware of some of the signs of PPD 2.) those who may be aware…but feel as if they can “Handle the Symptoms” on their own, and3.) Caregivers and family members for reinforcement, encouragement, and support when extra attention is needed.    Everyone is unique, so this information is intended to bring awareness, provoke thought, offer comfort and reassurance, and to communicate some resources for seeking assistance.
