Never walk aloneThe maternity ward at Hadassah-University Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem offers a new service for women experiencing aspects of postnatal depression. The initial level, group therapy, is followed by individual attention if necessary. When required, women are referred to the medical center’s mental health clinic. The idea is to offer a wide range of treatments to address cases of depression following birth in the hope of preventing more serious cases that might go undetected or untreated.
