Recognizing the need to provide person-centered, recovery-oriented services for people who experience mental distress during the perinatal period, the MHTTC Perinatal Mental Health (PMH) Coordination Group came together to provide training, develop products, increase access to research-based resources, and provide technical assistance to health and mental health professionals serving persons who experience mental health symptoms during the perinatal period.
In December 2020, the MHTTC PMH Coordination Group developed and distributed an electronic needs assessment to gauge training and technical assistance needs related to PMH. The needs assessment was distributed via email and social media to health, mental health, and addiction treatment providers; community health centers; and perinatal health contact lists. This document is a summary report of responses. These results will help the PMH Coordination Group and the MHTTC Network better collaborate with health and mental health professionals and stakeholders throughout the country. Also, these results will inform the development of products, training materials, and technical assistance requests.
