Webinar Description

Depression in Mothers: More Than the Blues is a user-friendly toolkit developed by SAMHSA, in partnership with experts in the fields of mental health and maternal and child health. The toolkit delivers background information about depression. It also offers ideas that providers can use daily when helping mothers, and their families, who may be suffering from depression. Dr. Deborah Perry, from Georgetown University’s Center for Child and Human Development, will walk the participants through the toolkit framework and components. Opportunities for additional technical assistance also will be shared.

Please join SAMHSA to learn more about how you can best support pregnant women and mothers of young children who may be at risk for or experiencing depression.
