Course Description:                                                       

            Over 22,000 women in Los Angeles County experience perinatal mood disorders each year. Left untreated, mood disorders experienced by pregnant women and mothers can affect the development of the unborn child and new baby, as well as the quality of attachment. There are adverse consequences for partner relations and family. These effects can lead to long-term consequences, including difficulties in school and relationships for children.

In this training participants will discover that maternal           depression is a highly treatable condition. They will come to recognize the signs and symptoms in mothers and how to screen effectively for mood disorders. Finally, participants will gain new tools to intervene as front line responders in culturally competent and empathic ways.
