CoE-IHS Webinar: Perinatal Health Part 4: Addressing Serious Mental Illness
People who are pregnant and postpartum in the U.S. are significantly and increasingly vulnerable to mental health and substance use challenges, including postpartum depression, bipolar disorder and postpartum psychosis. Risks are even greater for people of color during the perinatal period because of historic health inequities.
Join us on Thursday, July 21, 2-3 p.m. ET for the final session in our Perinatal Health Webinar series, Perinatal Health Part 4: Addressing Serious Mental Illness, to learn more about the needs and opportunities to address serious mental illness during the perinatal period. Understanding the prevalence of serious mental illness during the perinatal period and effective treatments will assist integrated care providers in offering individuals and families the continuum of care they need.
During this webinar, you will hear insights from experts at NC Maternal Mental Health MATTERS, a perinatal psychiatric consultation program, and from the UNC Perinatal Psychiatry Inpatient Unit, who will discuss their comprehensive approaches to integrating medical, mental health and substance use treatment services during the perinatal period.
