Every year, approximately 10,000 patients in Washington experience mental health problems before, during or after delivery. Our goal is to give their perinatal, mental health and primary care providers the support and tools they need to effectively treat their patients’ mental health disorders during pregnancy and postpartum.

Perinatal psychiatrists Drs. Amritha Bhat and Deb Cowley, will conduct a half day training that includes presentations, case examples, and interactive small group exercises focused on mental health screening and treatment during the perinatal period.

Attendees will learn:

  • Process of differential diagnosis of common mental disorders in the perinatal period
  • Risks of untreated mental disorders and risks of psychotropic medication use during pregnancy and lactation.
  • Informed consent discussions with pregnant and breastfeeding women regarding commonly used psychotropic medicationss

This free workshop is open to anyone who cares for pregnant women or new moms including but not limited to: obstetricians, midwives, registered nurses, pharmacists, pediatricians, psychiatrists & other primary care and mental health providers.
