Maternal Depression Sustainability Materials

Maternal Depression Screening in Pediatrics

Maternal depression affects 1 in 7 new mothers in the United States, and perhaps up to 50% of low-income mothers. It has devastating effects on child development that can impact the child and family for years to come. In Nassau County, New York, there is an increasing number of low-income, immigrant families isolated by suburban geography and acculturation struggles that is at particular risk for unidentified, untreated maternal depression.

The materials below are to help you maintain your screening efforts now that the Docs for Tots technical assistance has ended.
