About our February Maternal Vitality Study Release

Our Maternal Vitality Study is a research-based therapy protocol developed with Black women for Black women by the Institute of Family and Community Impact and our supporting partner The George Gund Foundation. The Maternal Vitality Study centers family vitality at the core of the study and invites Black women to contribute strategies to identify and combat not only maternal depression, but also race-related stressors during 15 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based therapy sessions.
