Therapeutic Advances in PPD and MDD:

Redefining Care for Clinicians and Patients

Postpartum depression (PPD) and major depressive disorder (MDD) are common, pervasive, and frequently severe and debilitating mental disorders. Screening rates for PPD are low and this disorder often remains undiagnosed. Assessment, diagnosis, and the appropriate treatment are key in managing patients with PPD. Patients with MDD often fail standard therapies or experience side effects resulting in nonadherence. New and emerging treatment strategies for PPD and MDD may offer more effective management for patients with these conditions. Join us on this page for CME activities, resources, and to share your insights with colleagues via the polling feature.
