Maternal Mental Health Updates
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.
