Perinatal mental health refers to the mental health concerns experienced by persons during pregnancy and in the first year postpartum. Some of the most common conditions include Baby Blues and Postpartum Depression. Many individuals have risk factors for these conditions, even those who have had "easy" pregnancies in the past! However, many women still feel stigmatized about mental health and often don't discuss their concerns with their providers. This introductory webinar will highlight common perinatal mental health concerns, symptoms, and validated screening tools appropriate for use in multiple settings.
