NIH joins with women’s organization to debut postpartum depression video
August 04, 2015
A new video about postpartum depression marks the launch of a mental health education collaboration by two National Institutes of Health (NIH) Institutes and one of the nation’s largest African-American women’s organizations. The NIMH and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) have partnered with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. to create the Mental Health Across the Lifespan Initiative. This initiative seeks to raise awareness about issues affecting women and their families throughout the lifespan, including mental disorders such as postpartum depression, and issues that can impact mental health, including bullying and aging.
