Treatment for Postpartum Depression
Postpartum depression can be treated with counseling, support groups and
medication. The St. Joseph Hospital "Caring for Women with Maternal
Depression Program" is run by a team of psychiatrists, licensed clinical
and social workers who provide comprehensive help and support to women
who suffer from postpartum depression.
Getting Help at St. Joseph Hospital
The "Caring for Women with Maternal Depression Program" is part
of the comprehensive services and support that St. Joseph Hospital provides
to their patients and the larger community. In fact, 100 percent of mothers
who deliver at St. Joseph Hospital are screened for postpartum depression.
Also, we work in collaboration with a program called MOMS (Maternal Outreach
Management System) to provide services for our Spanish-speaking patients.
The program has been treating mothers since 2006. It has been instrumental
in educating other medical professionals about symptoms of postpartum
depression, as well as treatment for women who suffer from this condition.
Our Program Includes:
- Individual counseling sessions
- New Mother's Group
- Medication Services as needed
