Abstract (Summary)

Mental health illness during the postpartum period can impede a mother from providing appropriate nurturing to a child's basic needs which increases the potential for abuse and neglect. Support systems for Latinas during this transitional period often fail to identify postpartum depression (PPD) making the new mother vulnerable to mental health complications. As the child welfare system does not provide PPD services specific to this population, it was essential to develop a culturally specific support program to help decrease the risk of child abuse by new mothers experiencing PPD. With funding resources provided by The California Wellness Foundation, the goal of this grant proposal was to provide support for Latinas suffering from PPD, improve their coping with this illness and decrease further risk of child abuse and neglect at Kaiser Permanente's Educational Outreach, a non profit agency in Baldwin Park, California. The actual submission or funding for this program was not required for the completion of this project.
