Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Summary This report highlights evidence on the impact of maternal depression on the mother and child as it relates to the public-sector systems that serve them and discusses potential short- and long-term cost implications. The goal of this brief is to serve as a source of information for state and local policymakers and practitioners concerned with child and family outcomes, and to inform them of the evidence connecting maternal depression and negative outcomes for mother and child. The overview of the evidence is not meant to be exhaustive; rather, this brief highlights evidence most relevant to the impact of untreated maternal depression on both the mother and the child and the potential cost implications for systems that serve those families affected by depression. Due to the lack of clear data implicating the specific costs of maternal depression to each public-sector system, this brief focuses on the conceptual links between maternal depression and negative outcomes, as well as the hypothesized impact on each system.
