Perinatal Mood Disorders Training Events
For the past three years, the New Jersey Department of Health has co-sponsored a training event for New Jersey healthcare providers. Each year, a different consortium from the six consortia funded by the department to support postpartum women helps to plan the event and obtain accreditation from the relevant agencies.
2011 - Perinatal Mood Disorders: Co-Morbidities, Management & Recovery taught healthcare workers how to recognize the co-morbidities associated with Intimate Partner Violence, explained the risks and benefits of medications prescribed to treat PMD, described the association between eating disorders and perinatal depression, and helped attendees relate to the personal experience of a PMD survivor.
