Webinar: Increasing Awareness and Screening in the Hospital Setting: A Comprehensive Program for Maternal Mental Health

Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs,) including Postpartum Depression, are the most common complications associated with pregnancy and childbirth, affecting, at minimum, one in five pregnant and postpartum women, as documented in the 2017 Report of the California Task Force on the Status of Maternal Mental Health. If left undetected and untreated, these conditions may lead to serious health risks for the mother, negatively affect the mother/child bond, and the child’s long-term physical, emotional and developmental health, and can be devastating for families.
