The Impact of Racial Residential Segregation on the Mental Health of Pregnant Women

We will create a large diverse cohort of more than 360,000 pregnant Black, Hispanic, Asian and white women to: examine the relationship between racial residential segregation and prenatal depression, anxiety and trauma (Aim 1); and prenatal depressive severity (Aim 2). Analyses will be stratified by race/ethnicity. This study has important public health, clinical and policy implications for addressing racial/ethnic mental health inequities in a vulnerable population, pregnant women.
