IEPMHC at First Five Riverside County

After attending and presenting at the recent First Five Riverside county meeting, IEPMHC was highlighted in the First Five of Riverside County website.

"Studies show that between 10 to 15% of women with children experience postpartum depression. For teenage mothers the rate is about 26% and for women living in poverty the number can be as high as 35%. To help increase awareness and resources for families, the Inland Empire Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative was formed. It recently developed a support group for Riverside County residents at a WIC clinic in Rubidoux. Get the facts, symptoms and other information provided in a recent presentation to the Commission."
