Postpartum Depression

Mental Health

We realize that there are hundreds of things to learn about raising a family and developing healthy habits. WIC has expertise in several areas of nutrition and health. But we realize there are many questions that we are not trained to answer. For this reason WIC is also a referral agency.

Below you will find other websites and community resources that can help you in learning all you want to take care of your family. If these resources do not meet your needs, feel free to Ask a Dietitian and we will respond to your questions
