Service Description
The SPRING Project is designed to increase options for affordable, high-quality psychotherapy for mothers and their families experiencing prenatal or postpartum anxiety and depression. The project is an outreach initiative sponsored by the Contemporary Freudian Society, an interdisciplinary psychoanalytic member organization. The Project aims to increase links between primary care and health care providers working with new mothers so that vulnerable mothers are identified and more likely to get access to the mental health help they need. The fifty-plus network therapists participating are licensed mental health professionals with special training in the treatment of perinatal mood disorders. All providers will work on a reduced fee basis so that insurance limitations are not a concern. Contact Dr. Laura Hickok, [email protected] or Dr. Elizabeth Fritsch, [email protected] to get connected with a local provider. Contact will be made within 48 hours.
