  • This event has passed.

January 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

This is part of the AAMC Maternal Mental Health Learning Series.

Screening for perinatal mood disorders is critically important and often the first step towards having a conversation about proper treatment with a health care provider. Depression and anxiety in the perinatal period effect on average 1 in 5 birthing persons with rates more than doubled for birthing persons of color. For this webinar, the speakers will discuss the new ACOG clinical practice guidelines published in June – Screening and Diagnosis of Mental Health Conditions During Pregnancy and Postpartum and Treatment and Management of Mental Health Conditions During Pregnancy and Postpartum as well as other ACOG resources for providers, patients, and families. The clinical practice guidelines offer a roadmap for providers to take the necessary steps of screening, diagnosing, treating, and managing mental health conditions. The speakers will discuss how they have interpreted and implemented the guidelines in their own practice and how other providers can utilize them to help their patients.

Register for other sessions in the series as they become available here. Please note that you may participate in multiple forums or choose individual sessions to attend.
