The popular daytime show currently features an ongoing storyline with one of the central characters, Dr. Robin Scorpio, dealing with postpartum depression following the birth of her daughter.

“As our viewers expect to be entertained each day, they also want to be educated when an important medical issue is integrated into storyline. I am sure some members of our audience are either directly affected with post partum depression or know someone who is, and we believe it is important to direct our audience to the organizations that can help them,” said Jill Farren Phelps, executive producer, “General Hospital.”
