Just a quick post from me today to alert moms in New York City of an opportunity to share their postpartum depression (PPD) experiences.
Your stories will enable the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) to learn about the needs of women who have experienced PPD.
We can only make progress in the development of services for new mothers if mothers speak up and share their experiences with others. That’s akin to the social support structure that used to exist years and years ago when families lived close to one another and women in communities supported one another.
With increased services tailored to new mothers, we have a better shot at decreasing the occurrence of PPD and for those who do experience it, to help speed up their recovery and reduce negative outcomes.
So, please, if you are in New York City, please call Quiana Cooper at 212-235-6232 or e-mail her at email@example.com.
Women that participate in a focus group will receive a thank you of $100.
All responses and information will remain confidential.
