Connecting Psychiatry - Expert community for all mental health professionals

(PSYCHIATRIC TIMES) - As part of the 2003 National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) on Oct. 9, the Children's Hospital Boston and Screening for Mental Health Inc. have collaborated on a campaign to raise awareness about the impact of parental depression on families.

The campaign--called "Can A Depressed Parent Be A Good Parent? You Bet!"--will feature brochures to be distributed at NDSD sites, including primary care sites.

Based on an intervention developed by William R. Beardslee, M.D., psychiatrist-in-chief at the Children's Hospital Boston, the campaign encourages depressed parents to talk with their children about their illness.
