The Schuyler Center is at the center of efforts to leverage efforts in New York to improve screening, referral and treatment for maternal mental health. Research is clear that maternal depression has negative consequences for the mother and the child. There is consensus in New York and across the nation that we can and must take action to address maternal depression in the interest of healthy child development and maternal and family health. Developing policies to prevent, identify and treat maternal depression can be challenging because this issue sits at the uneasy intersection of health, mental health, child health, child welfare, and child care and early education.
New York State has been accepted into the Moving on Maternal Depression (MOMD) national learning collaborative, an 18-month project coordinated by the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) to improve policy and practice related to maternal mental health. This is an 18 month project to improve policy and practice in New York related to maternal mental health. The project offers an opportunity for New York to partner with experts around the country to advance policies that help identify and address untreated maternal depression among mothers with young children. The project is led by the NYS Office of Mental Health and coordinated by the Schuyler Center for Analysis and Advocacy.
