Moving Beyond Depression™ is an evidence-based intervention for mothers experiencing perinatal depression, created by the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Every Child Succeeds. The objective of the program is to help mothers develop coping skills and support them in recovering from depression so that they may better care for their families and themselves.
At Healthy Start, Moving Beyond Depression is available for Allegheny and Westmoreland County moms who screen positive for depressive symptoms and are enrolled in our home visiting programs, or are receiving support through Family Centers or Allegheny County Health Department home visiting programs. A Moving Beyond Depression therapist will work with a mom’s Community Health Worker or other home visitor, and will provide 15 weeks of In-Home Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (provided virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic) at no cost to the family. Moms enrolled into the Hello Baby Priority program are also eligible for Healthy Start’s Moving Beyond Depression program.
