Research in the Works
Learn about a new pilot study that aims to improve the mental health and co-parenting relationships of underserved, low-income parents and their partners. Adapting and Testing the Feasibility of a Prenatal Intervention for Low-Income Parents will adapt and test the feasibility of a group-based intervention called Choices in Childbirth & Co-Parenting (3CP) aimed at reducing depression and stress among low-income new mothers and their partners early in pregnancy. Funded by the UMASS Medical School Center for Clinical and Translational Science (UMCCTS) this pilot project is a collaborative effort among UMass Amherst, UMass Medical School, Square One, and the Children’s Trust.
