Mothers and Babies training available December 16

mb courseA training on the Mothers and Babies curriculum is available on December 16 for community agency staff working with pregnant and postpartum women. The program was developed using cognitive-based therapy to prevent and reduce postpartum depression.

The full-day training will be facilitated by Dr. Darius Tandon of the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. It is free and lunch is included.

The Mothers and Babies curriculum is an evidence-based group and home visitation intervention for use with at-risk pre- and inter-conceptional women. It provides these women with a course aimed at preventing the onset of major depressive episodes, allowing them to practice ways to free their mind and connect with others.

To register, complete this form and return it to Sabrina Willis at or fax to 904.353.2131 by December 1. The training is  presented by the Magnolia Project, an initiative of the Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalition, and and Florida State College at Jacksonville.
