Screening women for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) is extremely important, as they affect 15-20% of childbearing women in the United States each year (see ACOG screening recommendations). Symptoms can develop during pregnancy or at any point in the first postpartum year, and if left untreated, PMADs are associated with negative outcomes for mothers and babies.
This short online training will help you to effectively screen pregnant and postpartum women for mood and anxiety disorders, as well as refer them to proper treatment.
