Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion Announces Research Study Opportunity for Mothers with Psychiatric Disabilities

The Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion has launched a new research study examining the effectiveness of an Internet parenting education and social support program for mothers with a psychiatric disability. The TU Collaborative is looking for women who are interested in participating in an online education course designed to enhance parental knowledge and skills in the following areas: illness management, child development, stress reduction, parent-child communication, and promoting resiliency in their child. This program also involves Internet social support through a Listserv, which is co-moderated by a parent with a psychiatric disability and a mental health professional.  This group connects mothers with a psychiatric disability to a community of supportive peers, either in one’s own home or anywhere they can access the Internet—24-hours a day, 7-days a week.  The TU Collaborative is looking for woman who:

  • Are mothers (over the age of 18) diagnosed with a mental illness (Major Depression, Schizophrenia Spectrum Disorder or Mood Disorder)
  • Currently have primary/shared custody and are serving as the caretaker for at least one child (natural, adopted, or stepchild) under the age of 18
  • Have access to a computer and the Internet
  • Would consider using the Internet for support and information
  • Are United States Residents
  • Are fluent in English

Participants will be compensated up to $100 for their participation in this study.

To participate in this study you MUST contact Temple University. For more information or to participate please email momsupport@temple.edu.  For more information on the TU Collaborative please visit www.tucollaborative.org.

    I’m not sure fathers who have psychiatric disabilities (even if they are the sole caregiver) qualify but you can certainly email them and ask about what options are available if only to just have the support and resources available to you.
