SLU Community Engagement Inventory

Happy Mothers, Healthy Families

Description: The overall goal of Happy Mothers, Healthy Families is to evaluate the efficacy of supportive text messaging in the treatment of postpartum depression and anxiety among mothers whose children receive care in a high-volume, academic pediatric clinic. Mothers identified as being at-risk for postpartum depression are provided with standard of care treatment which includes case management and cognitive behavioral therapy. In addition to this standard treatment, some of these mothers will receive supportive and motivational text messages. .

Community Partnerships:
