About the Event:

The term “perinatal” encompasses all aspects related to bearing children, including pregnancy, the year following the birth of a child, and sometimes even the journey to conceive, all of which can bring about stress and complications that may contribute to mood and anxiety disorders. Perinatal depression, the more well-known of the perinatal mental health disorders, affects one in five women during pregnancy and one in seven women postpartum. Less well-known perinatal mental health disorders include perinatal anxiety, OCD, posttraumatic stress disorder, bipolar, and psychosis. These conditions are often vastly misunderstood and not well represented in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Also often unrecognized is the fact that perinatal mood and anxiety conditions can also affect men. Over 86% of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are undiagnosed, leaving families to suffer in silence due to disorders that are easily treatable.

In this training, Megan MacCutcheon, LPC, PMH-C will provide an overview of Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs). Megan will review symptoms, statistics, and risk factors for each diagnosis. She will also shed light on how these disorders often go undiagnosed or undertreated, and she will discuss proper interventions, demonstrating how treating perinatal disorders may look different compared to treating non-perinatal mental health disorders. She will give insight into how providers can better screen for these disorders and will introduce several resources for families impacted by PMADs.
