Help is available for new or expectant mothers with depression, anxiety

Heather Sherman and Christine KowaleskiPostpartum depression and anxiety are fairly common, says Christine Kowaleski (at right in photo), a nurse practitioner who facilitates a support group for new mothers and expectant mothers. Taking part in that group is Heather Sherman (at left in photo) of Baldwinsville, who shares her personal postpartum story of suicidal thoughts and her struggles to find treatment and help others with similar problems. Kowaleski, an associate professor at Crouse Hospital‘s Pomeroy College of Nursing, also explains the differences between “baby blues” and postpartum depression and tells how to get help (call 315-470-7940 to register for the free, weekly support group).
