Congress Wants More Money Spent on Research for Postpartum Depression

The US House of Representatives passed a bill (H.R.20) that encourages NIH to spend more money on PPD, recognizing it as an underfunded area of research.

Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) has been pushing this bill for 5 years or so (in honor of Melanie Stokes). (He needs to work on his blog.)

This is a really great effort. The bill goes to the Senate now. Let both of your Senators know how you feel about this bill.

Think of all the money they could save by simply consulting Tom Cruise.
