Mind Over Mood Initiative
Bridging Gaps in Accessing Treatment and Care for Mothers in Early Childhood Home Visitation
The Mind Over Mood Initiative addresses maternal mental health within early childhood Home Visitation in multiple ways. One key component is the development of partnerships with independent practice therapists statewide. Mind over Mood is building a community of specialized perinatal mental health and attachment psychotherapists to attend to the unmet clinical needs of marginalized mothers who may be affected by trauma, socioeconomic stress, racial oppression and low social support. Since 2015, we have cultivated collaborations with over 130 private practice and small group practices across the state.
Husky-credentialed therapists who are passionate about providing psychotherapy to early childhood mothers experiencing depression, anxiety and/or trauma, are encouraged to introduce us to their practice to be invited to our two-part training series.
