Perinatal Mental Health Webinar: She Screened Positive for Depression, Now What? #

Every year, approx­i­mately 12,000 people in Washington State experi­ence depres­sion or anxiety during or after pregnancy. 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. Dr. Deborah Cowley, perinatal psychi­a­trist at the Univer­sity of Washington, will lead

this one-hour webinar. Atten­dees will learn:

  • Current infor­ma­tion about perinatal depres­sion and anxiety in Washington
  • Best practices for screening
  • How to integrate screening results into care plans

Please join us! This presen­ta­tion is open to anyone who cares for pregnant women or new moms including but not limited to: obste­tri­cians, midwives, regis­tered nurses, pharma­cists, pedia­tri­cians, psychi­a­trists, family physi­cians, nurse practi­tioners, commu­nity health workers, peer counselors, and other primary care and mental health providers.
