The Ellen Story Commission on Postpartum Depression: a Massachusetts Special Legislative Commission
This special legislative commission is tasked with investigating policy initiatives to address perinatal mental health and promoting mental health during pregnancy and the postpartum period. The Commission seeks to improve resources for perinatal mood disorders, including Postpartum Depression.
North Shore Postpartum Help has been involved since the Ellen Story Commission’s beginning, providing testimony, expertise, advocacy, and support. Several of our members serve of this Commission as well.
