Major local and statewide efforts are underway to improve the integration of mental health care for women around the time of pregnancy in the areas of education/ training; research; clinical and service delivery, as well as health policy. The Leon County Maternal Mental Health Coalition, led by the Maternal Mental Health Community Advisory Board has achieved a number of goals in this arena over the past year including the formation of a Tallahassee chapter of Postpartum Support International (PSI), as well as a mental health referral and resource list for the community. See the full list of updates from the Maternal Mental Health Community Advisory Board. We have also established a Statewide Maternal Mental Health Coalition that aims to improve coordination and synergy across the state to better address perinatal mental health.
