Brochures for Women, Partners and Families
These companion tri-fold brochures from HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) alert women and their families and friends to the symptoms and seriousness of depression and anxiety during and after pregnancy, and how to get help/treatment. HRSA/MCHB offers an online and print version of both brochures:
- Depression & Anxiety During and After Pregnancy Brochure for Moms
- Depression & Anxiety During and After Pregnancy Brochure for Fathers, Partners, Families & Friends
HRSA/MHCB also offers a longer booklet on Depression During & After Pregnancy in English and Spanish on their Mental and Behavioral Health: Mothers, Children & Families page under Related Resources.
Resources for individuals in need of assistance (emergent or otherwise) can be found via the SAMHSA Behavioral Health Treatment Services Locator, the Mental Health America's Finding Therapy page, and at MentalHealth.gov (including suicide prevention and a veterans’ crisis line).
Also available is a guide to help families who have a loved one who is suicidal or has made a suicide attempt. It provides information on understanding suicide, warning signs and action steps to take, and how to prevent future attempts and keep your loved one safe.
