New York City to launch program for postpartum depression

Author(s): Lydia L. Kim, Digital Content Editor

A new program for helping families affected by postpartum depression is set to hit New York City in 2024. The program is The New Family Home Visits initiative, and will first begin in Brooklyn before expanding throughout the rest of the city.

The program offers “expanded access to at-home screenings for anxiety and postpartum depression” which will then help connect mothers who may have or be at risk for the condition with healthcare professionals.

The program in New York will be the largest compared to other similar programs available in the United States.
