    Maternal Mental Health NOW

    The overall goal of our project is to improve recognition and response to perinatal mood and anxiety disorders in medical settings in the safety net. We will do this by implementing a model of collaborative perinatal mental health care in 3 FQHCs, evaluating its effectiveness and creating a best practice guide. We will address other barriers to identification and treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders by facilitating stigma-reduction workshops in the communities surrounding the sites.
