Former First Lady Laura Bush Visits the Seleni Institute

The Seleni Institute was honored this week to welcome the former First Lady of the United States of America, Laura Bush, to learn more about the mental health issues women face during their reproductive years.

Mrs. Bush met with Seleni Institute founder and executive chairwoman Nitzia Logothetis, clinical director Christiane Manzella, PhD, and executive director Rebecca Benghiat. They discussed the Institute’s unique 360-degree approach to supporting women experiencing postpartum depression and anxiety, infertility, miscarriage and child loss, infant sleep and eating issues, and relationship and parenting difficulties.

During her visit, Mrs. Bush was also able to tour the Seleni Institute facility, meeting staff and clinicians and visiting with mothers and babies attending our breastfeeding support clinic.
