One in five women experience a mental health or substance use disorder in pregnancy or postpartum.

Despite routine contact with medical providers, most pregnant and postpartum women with depression go unrecognized, undiagnosed and untreated. Lack of treatment can lead to devastating effects on birthing individuals, infants and families. 

Coming Soon, the ACCESS Mental Health for Moms team will offer mental health and substance use focused trainings to perinatal practitioners.

Additionally, check out the Parents Recovering from Opioid Use Disorder (PROUD) educational series. Whether it’s managing the withdrawal symptoms of an infant exposed to opioids before birth, understanding how prescribing practices influence misuse and recovery, or identifying different biases providers manifest in interactions with these families, this educational series has many strategies for helping families succeed and thrive.
