I just came across an article discussing an intervention aimed at reducing post partum depression in mothers. Basically, mothers who had been through post partum depression received training, then regularly called new mothers. While 25% of ‘high risk’ mothers receiving usual care reported reported significant depressive symptoms, only 14% of ‘high risk’ mothers who received peer support reported significant symptoms.

Peer support is a big part of what the depression support network offers, so it’s good to see it’s effectiveness demonstrated in studies. The research also reminds us of the importance of keeping up contact with others when we’re going through tough times.
