Women\u27s Priorities for Depression Care and Perceptions of a Peer Delivery Treatment Modality

By Spencer Young


While depression is a common mental disorder in pregnant and postpartum women, impacting both the woman and her child, many women are not receiving the care they need. To better understand women’s priorities for depression care and their perceptions of an innovative delivery method using peers, this study explored responses to an online survey among 118 among women who had endorsed a history of depression and had given birth within the last three years. Overall, women prioritized taking care of their baby and returning to their normal selves as indicators of depression remission and perceived peer delivery of depression treatment positively. These findings offer an important perspective with regard to women’s treatment preferences, and the potential success of future peer delivery depression treatment
