There has been a lot of media attention about the Melanie Blocker Stokes MOTHERS Act. John Grohol at PsychCentral does a great job refuting that there are false claims of PPD, complete with a mini-research review to back up what he’s saying. That’s in contrast to most of the mainstream media articles published about this topic. It’s as if the reporters somehow forgot that there’s an incredible amount of research on this topic.

It’s a no-brainer that we need more screening, more education, more awareness about this issue, not less. Imagine more mothers getting the help that they need and being happier during early motherhood (at least).
