Title of Collaborative Activity:

Fresh Perspectives in Perinatal Depression Research: Psychosocial Interventions and Mental Health Services

Description of Collaborative Activity:

On October 5-6, 2010, the NIMH convened a workshop to provide the growing number of early-stage investigators studying psychosocial interventions and mental health services for perinatal depression with the opportunity to discuss research strategies consistent with public health needs and NIMH priorities. NIMH priorities for perinatal depression align with current developments in federal healthcare legislation concerning the mental health of pregnant and post-partum women. With input from the CDC and experts from the broader field of depression research, the workshop incorporated informative and diverse perspective s from outside the immediate field of perinatal mental health.
