Reducing Maternal Depression and Its Impact on Young Children: Toward a Responsive Early Childhood Policy Framework

Knitzer, Jane; Theberge, Suzanne; Johnson, Kay

This issue brief reflects NCCP's continuing commitment to ensuring that every low-income child enters school with the skills to succeed, and that policymakers have access to the very best research to create policies that use public resources in the most effective, smartest way. It is based on a meeting convened through NCCP's Project THRIVE to identify and promote solutions to emerging issues that impact young children's healthy development and school readiness. The brief is being jointly published by Project THRIVE, through which NCCP serves as a resource to the Maternal and Child Health Bureau-funded State Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) systems program and Pathways to Early School Success, NCCP's on-going project to help policymakers, program administrators and practitioners address barriers that get in the way of reducing the achievement gap for young low-income children.
