Perinatal mental health disorders have historically been overlooked or disregarded as “baby blues,” but we can no longer ignore this underserved population. 1 in 5 women now experience significant symptoms of depression and/or anxiety during pregnancy or postpartum. Perinatal mental health disorders have unique risk factors, symptoms, and treatments not often discussed in graduate school mental health programs and not specifically listed in the DSM-5-TR, despite the fact that there is significant research around these mental health challenges. Focus and attention in this area of mental health treatment is imperative to ensure we are providing whole self care for young women and families!
In this workshop you will learn about prevalence, risks factors, specific perinatal mental health diagnoses, commonly used assessment tools, and basic treatment strategies to begin effectively serving families in the perinatal period. If you work with individuals or families in the childbearing years, this workshop will significantly increase your understanding of their most critical challenges.
