Pathways to Culturally Competent Care
Maternal Depression Brochure

This bilingual brochure was designed to highlight how maternal depression effects Vietnamese-American families with infants and young children. As the brochure unfolds, it reveals a collection of narratives that weave in specific cultural roles and customs in the voice of the mother, father, and mother-in-law, with the infant positioned in the center. The red panels of the brochure describe symptoms of depression and provide information on how to seek help.
