Culturally Responsive Intervention to Improve Maternal and Child Wellbeing (Principal Investigator: Sampson): This two year project aims to include Latina mothers and community members in the adaptation of a home visiting intervention to decrease postpartum depression developed by Dr. Sampson. The project has two phases: Phase 1 includes focus groups with mothers and family members at 6 agency sites across the country (2 in Texas). Phase 2 includes the delivery of the intervention (“PST4PPD”) by promatoras to Latina mothers who have scored high for postpartum depression symptoms. The intervention can be delivered in English or Spanish.
