UNC Opens Clinic To Treat Postpartum Depression

UNC Opens Clinic To Treat Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression is heartwrenching and debilitating. The lack of appropriate treatment options makes it even worse as evidenced by Maria Bruno's story.

"It's the kind of treatment these women should expect," says Dr. Samantha Meltzer-Brody.
