What's postpartum depression vs psychosis?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Jeff Jacobs

Varies: First off, it's very important to distinguish if there is psychosis present without a clinical depression, a depressive episode without psychosis, or both. There are many treatment options including a wide array of medication and non-medication interventions. The top priority is to ensure the immediate safety of both the mother and child(ren).
