Perinatal Behavioral Health: Access to Care, COVID-19 and Beyond

The total effects of the pandemic remain incalculable, yet emerging evidence suggests mental health and substance use disorders are on the rise. This is especially concerning for the perinatal population where the physical effects of these disorders may impact both woman and child. Join our expert panel of perinatal and behavioral health specialists on this 4-week series focused on the Physicians' and other frontline healthcare providers roles in identifying risk for these disorders, providing treatment recommendations, and accessing care coordination and referral support in an increasingly telehealth dependent landscape.

  • Physicians: OB/GYN, Family Practice, Pediatrics
  • Other advanced practice providers and nurses
