Who says you can’t teach an old dad new twists? All across the nation this Father’s Day weekend, people are telling their fathers, grandfathers, and other special men in their lives about a new “twist” in the law that may help them qualify for extra help paying for costs associated with their prescription drugs. When you’re spending time with Dad this weekend, ask him if he can use some help paying for his prescription drugs. If so, tell him about the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan and the extra help available through Social Security.

New Jersey Offers Free Resources for Women with Postpartum Depression and Other Perinatal Mood Disorders
Among the babies born in the United States every year, 35 percent are born from the beginning of June through the end of September. For every 8 in 10 births, new mothers will experience at least a brief episode of the "baby blues" – feelings of sadness, anxiety, loneliness, or moodiness – within the first few days of giving birth. After a couple of weeks these symptoms typically disappear. However, when symptoms persist or deepen in intensity, they may be a sign of postpartum depression or another perinatal mood disorder.
