Addressing Maternal Depression

October 19, 2004

Maternal depression affects not only a woman herself, but also her family, friends, and coworkers. Of particular concern is maternal depression's link to problems in children's health, mental health, and development. This Issue Focus highlights ways that health grantmakers can address maternal depression and its consequences, including educating women and health care providers, promoting screening and treatment, integrating mental health services into programs serving pregnant and parenting women, and supporting research.
