Making Depression Treatment More Accessible for Chicago Moms
With CTSA funding, Dr. Maki, Dr. Duffecy, and Dr. Stacie Geller, director of the Center for Research on Women and Gender, tested a method for incorporating Sunnyside for Moms into standard care: women completed an electronic screening for depression and other mental health conditions in the waiting room during routine prenatal clinic visits at the UI Wellness Clinic on Halsted. The trial showed that women found the screening questionnaire easy to complete and it was a low burden on clinic staff to administer.
