Task Force Founder Kimberly Wong and Task Force Member Dr. Carol Berkowitz were recently interviewed by the Wall Street Journal about their experiences suffering from and diagnosing maternal depression. Kimberly’s story was featured in The Juggle, a WSJ blog that provides readers with news, insights and tips on parenting, workplace issues, commuting, caregiving and other issues that busy readers with families face. Her story and Dr. Berkowitz’s experiences as the former president of the American Academy of Pediatrics also informed a print article on the correlation between a women’s perinatal depression and depression suffered by her children. Thanks so much to Melinda Beck and Michelle Gerdes for highlighting these issues! Way to go Kimberly and Carol for having the courage to share your stories and expertise!
