The ROSE Program
The ROSE Program (Reach Out, Stay Strong, Essentials for mothers of newborns) is an empirically-validated prevention intervention for postpartum depression. The ROSE Program has been specifically cited in the new U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommendation regarding the prevention of perinatal depression, as well as in the New York Times.
We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with Michigan State University and Brown University, offering an evidence-based program that has been shown to reduce cases of postpartum depression by half among low-income women in a series of randomized control trials.
ROSE is an educational class provided during pregnancy in settings that provide health care to low-income pregnant women. We have received funding from the National Institute of Health (NIH) to help clinics/agencies that serve low-income pregnant women learn and use ROSE as part of their routine care. ROSE is highly structured, easy to learn and can be delivered in both Spanish and English.

Defining a traumatic event is in the eye of the beholder. Trauma is a distressing or disturbing event. Many things can be considered traumatic - a diagnosis, bereavement, abuse, a natural disaster, an accident. We understand and respect the individual's experiences and need to move through them in their way. Our team has specialized training in assessing and treating trauma so you can be the best you can be.
