WHY MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH TRAINING?

Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) are among the most common pregnancy complications. As a mental health professional, it's very likely you'll treat clients who face one or more of these mental health challenges during their reproductive years and who need specialized treatment to cope and move forward successfully.

Most graduate programs do not offer training on how to treat these common disorders, or provide in-depth exploration of other topics (such as infertility and miscarriage). To address this need, we created our Maternal Mental Health Intensive in 2014, which equips clinicians and counselors with critical, evidence-based tools to fully support clients through one of the most challenging times of their lives.

Seleni is one of only a few organizations in the United States offering specialized training in treating PMADs, and it's the only one that includes in-depth instruction on treating perinatal loss.
