Elizabeth A. Mann Mothers with Depression Fund

Fund Type: Donor Advised
Regional Foundation: Greater Harrisburg Foundation

This fund is for mothers suffering from depression following the birth of a baby or while caring for young children. The stress associated with raising children as well as hormonal changes can lead to depression. Professional intervention may be necessary to help depressed women to be better mothers. When a mother suffers, her children do too. This fund exists to restore mental health and to bring relief.
