Grant Summary: Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation (SJH) requests $50,000 from the Telligen Community Initiative to expand a promising pilot project to reduce postpartum depression among low-income, high-risk women. With funding, SJH will hire a case manager to provide behavioral health interventions, including the ROSE curriculum, for women who screen as at-risk for postpartum depression. ROSE is an evidence-based approach that has been proven to reduce rates of postpartum depression by nearly 50%.
