Educating Mental Health Professionals About Perinatal Mood Disorders

It’s always an exciting opportunity when we can help to educate other health care and mental health professionals about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. It’s the way to increase awareness of these disorders, so as to recognize the symptoms, allowing us to intervene early. Providing treatment as soon as possible is key to a woman’s prompt recovery.

Therefore I’m pleased to announce that I will be presenting a session entitled, Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders: Diagnosis, Treatment and Positive Outcomes, this Friday November 7th from 2:30 to 5:30 at the Annual Convention of the Illinois Psychological Association. The conference is being held at the Hilton Doubletree Northshore Hotel in Skokie, Illinois.

In addition to my presentation and a short film from Postpartum Support International, there will be a panel of women who volunteered to tell their own stories of postpartum depression and answer audience questions, as a way to help educate mental health providers so that other women can get the help they need.

If you haven’t already done so, please register at the link below.
