Change your Medical Practice
Are you a healthcare professional? Help mothers that come to your practice by training your staff, utilizing screening tools, and displaying educational brochures and posters. Not having many or any local resources and referrals IS NOT a reason to dismiss screening or educating your staff and families about maternal mental health complications.
Research shows that 50% of maternal mental health cases are missed by simply using clinic judgement alone. The Postpartum Stress Center did a great job putting together screening and assessment tools you can start utilizing in your practice and most importantly how they should be administered.
