The Mothers and Babies: Mood and Health Research Program

The mission of the Mothers and Babies: Mood and Health Research Program is to develop research aimed at preventing the onset of perinatal depression and improving the mental health of families. Its intent is to focus on underserved populations, including low-income and ethnically diverse populations. Currently, the focus is on predominantly Spanish-speaking Latino populations.

The Mothers and Babies: Mood and Health Research Program fulfills this mission by:

  • Developing, evaluating, and implementing evidence-based interventions to prevent the onset of major depression during pregnancy and postpartum;
  • Conducting research relevant to improving the mood and health of families;
  • Conducting research with ethnically diverse and underserved populations, as a means to reduce health disparities;
  • Training and supporting graduate and undergraduate students with interest in clinical psychology and related areas, and collaborating with other researchers nationally and internationally.

Dr. Huynh-Nhu (Mimi) Le is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at The George Washington University and directs the Mothers and Babies: Mood and Health Research Program.
