What is the PSI Provider Directory?
It is an online directory of perinatal mental health providers from all across the United States, as well as Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. The first of its kind, the directory includes psychotherapists, prescribers and allied professionals (doulas, lactation support, and childbirth educators). Visitors can search for providers by category to get tailored results, such as location, insurance and specialties (pregnancy loss, trauma). All providers listed in the directory have specialized training and expertise in treating PMADs. The directory links back to www.postpartum.net, where help-seekers will find additional resources such as support coordinators and support groups to complement mental health treatment.
Why should you list your practice in the PSI Provider Directory?

Who utilizes the PSI Provider Directory?
Anyone can search this free, online directory at psidirectory.com. The directory serves as a resource for pregnant and postpartum persons, their friends and families, and healthcare providers. It has helped new and expecting parents easily connect with providers who understand PMADs and are trained to assist. In addition, The National Maternal Mental Health Hotline, a HRSA funded program, also uses the PSI Provider Directory to provide resources to callers.
Can you explain the critical importance of keeping your listing information up-to-date?
The directory is being utilized 24/7. We want to ensure we are providing accurate referrals, and updated listings help us achieve that. In particular, keeping your “accepting new clients” status and insurance information updated is crucial.
What are some areas in which we need more providers – specialties, accepting certain insurance plans, etc.?
In general, we need more therapists who accept private insurance, and we are especially in need of Medicaid providers. We also see a need for more Spanish speaking therapists and providers of color.
