Despite the increased awareness and government funding dedicated to improving maternal and fetal outcomes, maternal mental health conditions remain one of the most prevalent complications during and after pregnancy, affecting one in five women. An alarming 75% of these women do not receive any treatment1, and nearly one in four die from suicide or opioid overdoses2

If your organization is dedicated to disrupting this disheartening trend, effectively addressing and improving maternal mental health outcomes should be a central component of your strategy.  

Join us to hear industry expert Lora Sparkman unveil staggering statistics and discuss strategies to identify, diagnose, and treat mothers with mental health conditions throughout their entire pregnancies.   

Learning objectives:  

  • Uncover key findings on the current maternal mental health landscape.  
  • Identify the myriad of factors that contribute to the complexity of diagnosing and treating maternal mental health.  
  • Explore actionable strategies and resources that your organization can start utilizing today.  

If you cannot attend the live webinar, we still encourage you to register, as all registrants will receive an email with a link to the recording and resources.
