Perinatal depression - depression that occurs during pregnancy or in the year after birth - can have far-reaching, harmful effects for all family members. Fathers and adoptive families can also experience perinatal depression. Birth outcomes can be adversely affected by depression in pregnancy, and postpartum depression can have a long-term impact on child outcomes. This workshop will outline: 1) prevalence of perinatal depression and risk factors; 2) impact on birth and child outcomes; 3) evidence-based practices for detecting, assess and manage perinatal depression; 4) and how the Massachusetts Child Psychiatry Access Program (MCPAP) for Moms can help improve outcomes for babies, children, and families.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Understand the prevalence of perinatal depression and risk factors
Objective 2: Identify emotional complications that arise during pregnancy and the post-partum period
Objective 3: Discuss screening tools and best practices to identify and manage perinatal depression
