9-1 Final Project Two Submission: Policy Analysis and Testimony Transcript Introduction Policy The Melanie Blocker Stokes MOTHERS Act, sponsored by Senators Menendez, Durbin and Snowe, was written to provide support services and education to women suffering from postpartum depression and psychosis, and to support research into the causes, diagnosis and treatments for postpartum depression and psychosis (Legislation, n.d.). This proposal for those states that has not yet embraces the fact that women go through depression before and after childbirth, and federal policies needs to be in place for women all over the United States. Maternal depression, which includes depression before, during and after pregnancy, can have serious consequences for mothers and their children, especially infants and toddlers (Wile, 2019.). This Act is to bring awareness to those states that has not yet embraces the fact that women go through depression before and after childbirth, and federal policies needs to be in place for women all over the United States. In order to understand this Act, one must know how this act came to be. The Mother’s Act came as a result of a tragic death of Ms. Melanie Blocker- Stokes, who developed a postpartum psychosis after giving birth to her daughter on February 23, 2001 (Rhodes & Segre, "Perinatal depression: A review of US legislation and law," 2013). After being hospitalized about three times, on June 12, 2001 she jumped from a 12-story window to her death (Rhodes & Segre, "Perinatal depression: A review of US legislation and law," 2013). Now there has been several cases of deaths cause by postpartum depression or Antepartum depression, and the number of cases is increasing, and no one understands or have an explanation of on the causes of PPD.

It also directs future actions of the Director of the National Institute of Mental Health (Rhodes & Segre, "Perinatal depression: A review of US legislation and law," 2013). The second provision of Section 2952b, authorizes grants to support the establishment, operation, and delivery of effective and cost-efficient systems for providing clinical services to women with, or at risk for, postpartum depression or psychosis (Rhodes & Segre, "Perinatal depression: A review of US legislation and law," 2013).
