The Mothers and Babies Course

The Mothers and Babies course is a cognitive behavioral intervention designed to teach mood regulation skills to English- and Spanish-speaking low-income women at high risk for perinatal depression. The curriculum is presented in 6-8 week modules covering thoughts, activities, and social contacts. Manuals for both moderators and participants can be downloaded for free. Three randomized controlled trials have shown promising evidence for efficacy in reducing depressive symptoms and, to a more preliminary extent, preventing major depressive episodes.
