Feedback form is now closed.
Low income mothers of young children are at exceptional risk for depressive syndromes. Despite the availability of efficacious treatments, most depressed persons do not receive treatment. We evaluated an internet-facilitated CBT intervention for depression tailored to mothers of young children (Mom-Net). Participants (N=266) were recruited via Head Starts and randomly assigned to either to the Mom-Net program or a Motivational Interviewing and Referral to Services (MIRS) condition. We found a significantly lower depression symptoms in the Mom-Net condition relative to the active control condition. A coach-facilitated internet-delivered CBT intervention designed for parents of young children is efficacious in reducing depression.

At the end of this session the participant will be able to:
  • Know more about the risk for depression and need for services for mothers with children enrolled in Head Start.
  • Be familiar with a new and innovative treatment for mothers of young children dealing with depression.
