Perinatal Mental Health Training for Frontline Providers

Frontline Providers – OBGYNs, nurse practitioners, certified nurse-midwives, family doctors, internists, and others – are the first, and often the only, person new moms turn to. Are you ready to respond with effective and well-researched treatment options to help them get better?

Frontline Provider Training – The training, provided by PSI perinatal psychiatry experts, is designed to equip frontline providers with the skills necessary to assess patients for perinatal mental health complications and, as appropriate, provide treatment or connect individuals with additional resources and care.  It is available as either a single day onsite course or via two 2 hour-long webinars.

Postpartum Support International (PSI) is the leading organization devoted to perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. In addition to supporting mothers, fathers, and families directly, PSI offers frontline healthcare providers with resources to help identify, support and treat individuals living with perinatal mental health complications.
