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.
