Global Mental Health Lab

Dr. Verdeli and her team at the Global Mental Health Lab at Teachers College, Columbia University in partnership with Food for the Hungry is undertaking a 33 month project which will test the integration of Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Groups (IPT-G) within Care Group projects and assess whether the treatment of maternal depression with IPT-G improves the adoption of maternal behaviors that can reduce stunting in Kitgum District in northern Uganda. Using a cluster randomized controlled trial design, Food for the Hungry will test whether adding IPT-G for half of the women identified with depression improves the adoption of household health and nutrition behaviors known to improve child linear growth | Funded by: Eleanor Crook Foundation
