The New Haven MOMS Partnership – Combatting Depression, Reducing Stress and Building Foundational Skills for Success

The New Haven MOMS Partnership is a coalition led by mothers, community-based providers, local and state government, national partners and academic institutions committed to the vision and mission of maternal and child well-being. The MOMS Partnership not only focuses on helping mothers meet their basic needs, but also seeks to improve their mental health so that they can become better parents to their children and more active members of their community.

Segment 1:  Using  a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy intervention to reduce depression and build skills or parenting and employment success
Segment 2:  Strategies for achieving high levels of participation (both weekly attendance and overall completion)
Segment 3:  Using technology to keep mothers engaged
Segment 4:  Building effective partnerships
