This two-day training is appropriate for a range of providers, including OBs, pediatricians, midwives, RNs, social workers, mental health therapists, doulas, public health employees, IBCLCs, and more.

Objectives of this training:

  • Understand the “real” transition to parenthood.
  • Know the spectrum of perinatal mental health disorders.
  • Know the risk factors for PMADs.
  • Know key prevention strategies.
  • Understand high risk populations and health disparities.

We are approved for 11.5 CEUs for LICSW, LMHC, LMFT and  11.5 CEARPS for RNs.

Ample scholarships are available for those working with under-served populations. We hope this training is a starting point for a larger discussion on how you and your organization can best serve childbearing families experiencing perinatal mental health complications.
