Online intervention helps teenage moms deal with depression

Today:- New York, March – If you are a teenage mom and suffering from depression, an online intervention may help as it can improve your depression treatment rates, a new study suggests.

The findings suggested that an online programme persuaded teenage mothers to seek medical help for depression, highlighting an inexpensive way to increase mental health treatment rates for the vulnerable group.

Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person’s thoughts, behaviour, feelings, and sense of well-being.

“Untreated postpartum depression hinders a mother’s relationship with her child, her functioning at work and school, mothering skills and development,” said lead author M. Cynthia Logsdon, Professor at the University of Louisville Hospital in Kentucky.

“The condition can also harm a baby’s development and attachment to the mother,” Logsdon added.

According to the study, half of the roughly 400,000 adolescents 18 and younger who give birth annually in the US experience depressive symptoms, but less than 25 per cent follow referrals for depression evaluation and treatment.

For the study, published in the journal Archives of Women’s Mental Health, researchers took up cases from 2013 to 2016.

It involved more than 200 teenage moms in urban, suburban and rural counties in Kentucky and study participants on average were 18 years old.

The website included videos of adolescent mothers describing their experiences with postpartum depression and treatment, questions and answers, and local and national resources, including referrals for counselling services and suicide and child-abuse prevention hotlines.

For both rural and urban counties, the intervention led to significant changes in attitude, intention to seek depression treatment and actually seeking treatment, the researcher said.

  1. I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this
    post is written by him as no one else know such
    detailed about my difficulty. You are incredible!
    Thanks!

  2. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar
    one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of
    spam comments? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can advise?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  3. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was
    a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

  4. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but
    it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you
    know any ways to help protect against content
    from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

  5. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins
    to help with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank
