Successes and Challenges of State-Funded Perinatal Psychiatry Access Programs

When:  Oct 12, 2023 from 04:00:00 PM to 05:00:00 PM (ET)

This is part of the AAMC Maternal Mental Health Learning Series.

Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are commonly underdiagnosed and undertreated. Primary care, obstetric, and other perinatal care professionals often have questions on how to evaluate, initiate, and follow-up on treatment for perinatal mental health and substance use disorders. State-funded perinatal psychiatry access programs like MCPAP for Moms, Project TEACH NY, and NC Maternal Mental Health MATTERS are three programs affiliated and supported by academic medical centers that are staffed weekdays from 9a-5p by perinatal psychiatrists who offer training, consultation, resources, and referrals to build the capacity of perinatal care professionals to screen, assess, and treat perinatal mental health and substance use disorders. The three programs serve different patient populations and have structural and funding differences. This webinar will focus on the successes, challenges such as barriers to care, and opportunities, as well as how the state-funded access programs began. A key takeaway from this webinar will be for providers to understand how these programs can help them in their practice. Data and outcomes metrics for these programs will also be discussed, including approaches to understanding provider utilization.
