Stepping Up: Prevention Strategies for Pregnancy, Parenting and Infancy announces the launching of Keys to Postpartum Depression.
Created by nurse scientists at the University of Washington and members of the Washington State First Steps Team, Keys to Postpartum Depression offers a series of multi-media training modules on Understanding and Treating Women with Perinatal Depression & Mood Disorders; Relationship Focused Practice; and Screening for Perinatal Depression. Approximately 50% of women with perinatal depression are never identified.
We hope that First Steps providers and other visitors to this site will benefit from this free public resource, developed under the supervision of Professor Emeritus of Nursing Kathryn E. Barnard, RN, PhD in cooperation with the First Steps program funded by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Medical Assistance Administration.
Stepping Up: Prevention Strategies for Pregnancy, Parenting and Infancy received a Media Award from the American Academy of Nursing in 2004. It was created in 2003 as a free public resource for First Steps providers serving low-income populations of pregnant and parenting women with medical care, support services and targeted case management.
