Learn how to effectively screen and identify parents experiencing perinatal mood and anxiety disorders in your practice. 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 risk factors for PMADs.
  • Know key prevention strategies.
  • Understand high risk populations and health disparities.
  • Understand the impact of birth experiences on postpartum emotional health.
  • Be knowledgeable about the impacts of perinatal mental health on families and communities.
  • Be knowledgeable about risk and symptoms of partners and fathers.
  • Know the components of a treatment plan.
  • Be able to effectively talk about, and screen new/expectant parents
  • Be knowledgeable about psychiatric medications during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Training is offered at $250 for both days or $140 each day.

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 underserved 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.
