    About This Project

    Postpartum mood disorders represent a critical public health issue affecting mothers and their children. Increased public awareness has resulted in increased research on etiology, prevalence, and interventions; however, the experiences of minority women have been ignored. This study will explore postpartum mental health needs of Hispanic mothers and specifically, how risk factors, social support, and personal characteristics are related to treatment seeking during this vulnerable period.
