Model Treatment Programs

Moving Beyond Depression (MBD) is a comprehensive approach to identifying and treating depression in mothers participating in home visitation. Research has demonstrated that depression in the postpartum period occurs in about 26% of high risks mothers. Research has also shown that home visitors often do not identify clinically significant depression. Even when depression is recognized, few mothers access effective, evidence based treatments in the community. MBD was developed to address these needs through:

  • establishment of a screening process to idenity mothers in need of treatment


  • provide an evidence-based treatment for depression that has been adapted for home visitation in order to optimize outcomes

Treatment consists of 15 weekly sessions of In Home-Cognitive Behavioral Theapy by masters level therapists.
