Depressed Mothers in Rural Areas: Web Facilitated Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (Mom-Net)

This Internet-delivered CBT intervention is a means to overcome barriers to service utilization, providing treatment to mothers of young children displaying elevated depressive symptoms.

The project is designed to evaluate Mom-Net, an internet-facilitated cognitive-behavioral (CBT) intervention for depression, adapted from Lewinsohn’s Coping with Depression Course, and tailored to mothers of young children. Mom-Net, which was developed and piloted in a recently completed NIMH-funded investigation (MH070426), was designed to overcome the substantial barriers to treatment participation that exist for mothers experiencing economic hardship and those in rural communities.
