Description

Creating and Facilitating a Sustainable Perinatal Support Group

Free Trainings on creating perinatal support groups for healthcare professionals

Support groups don’t just help moms who are struggling; they can actually help prevent perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) by reducing isolation from the start. Having support is the top protective factor in preventing PMADs.

  • PMADs are common—about 15-20% of mothers will experience them. They are the number one complication of pregnancy, and even more prevalent in low socioeconomic communities.

  • PMADs have seriuos consequence-for parents and babies-if untreated. They can last longer than the post partum year, can impair bonding, and increase the odds of child abuse and neglect. Babies of parents with untreated PMADs can be impacted by development, self-regulation, and behavioral.
  • Research states that the fastest way to recovery from a perinatal mood disorder is a combination of social support (such as a support group), individual counseling and medication.

In these training sessions our objectives will be to:

  • Learn the essentials about creating a successful perinatal support group
  • Learn skills and group processes specific to perinatal support groups
  • Learn and be able to distinguish between different mood and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders
  • Be able to identify community resources and when to reach out for additional support
