    Postpartum Depression And Its Treatment

    in Parents

    Do you know that 1 in 8 women suffer from postpartum depression (PPD), according to Postpartum Support International (PSI)?

    "Maternal illness is not new. It was recognized as early as the fifth century B.C., when Hippocrates proposed that fluid from the uterus could flow to the head after childbirth and cause delirium. In the Middle Ages, mothers with such symptoms were viewed as witches or victims of witchcraft. " Belluck, P. (2014, June 15). Thinking of Ways to Harm Her. The New York Times. Retrieved from http://www.nytimes.com

    We've come a long way in understanding postpartum depression but we still need to work on de-stigmatizing the illness, and raise awareness on what PPD is, and most importantly, we need to implement successful tools to identify women mostly vulnerable to PPD, so treatment can start as soon as possible.

    Our guest today is Carly Snyder, M.D. , a psychiatrist in New York City with a focus and expertise in Reproductive Psychiatry.

    Depression and Neurofeedback

    in Moms and Family


    Feeling down or depressed from time to time happens to most people. Usually such feelings pass, and a person can improve his or her mood naturally. However, some people cannot break out of a depressed state over an extended period of time. In those cases, a person is considered to have clinical depression. However, there is much research that shows that depression is neurological, not psychological. Certain brain patterns are frequently linked to depression.

    in Health

    Roberto Lewis-Fernandez MD, Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center, Director of the NYS Center of Excellence for Cultural Competence, and Hispanic Treatment Program, at New York State Psychiatric Institute

    Ivan Balan, Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology (in Psychiatry), Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons and Psychologist, Anxiety Disorders Clinic & the Division of Gender, Sexuality, and Health, New York State Psychiatric Institute

    The problem:  Challenge in engaging and retaining patients in anti-depressant treatment

                            --over 50% of patients do not take anti-depressants as prescribed --30% of patients discontinue treatment after one month

    --Anti-depressants can help people overcome their depression, not completing treatment leaves them at risk of the depression returning and over the long term, having multiple episodes of depression.

    Our approach to the problem:  Training psychiatrists in Motivational Interviewing in order to improve how they engage patients in treatment and help build and sustain their motivation to get better.  But a key challenge was to keep session length consistent with the usual 15-20 minutes.
