How exactly do you screen for that and tell the difference between "normal" depression or PPD?

There are screening tools we use - simple 10 question forms. PPD is really the same as "normal" depression, except that it first appears right after the birth of a baby. Husbands and adoptive parents can get PPD, too!

What is the proper terminology when I receive property tax statements this year from two counties.

I don't have a kid. What's with this "school tax?"

Why would a husband consider faltering feelings as a physical result of another human being's experience? I think that's a reach Ace.

This is good news for the parents who've had PPD and not known what the heck was wrong with them.

Having a kid is a HUGE change in both parents' life. Husbands can get depressed for many reasons.
