Program Description:

Maternal mental illness is a frequently overlooked area of women’s health.  One in seven women will experience a mood or anxiety disorder during pregnancy or the postpartum period. However, only a subset of these women are screened, referred, and treated.

The film “Dark Side of the Full Moon” highlights the challenges that perinatal women face when they find themselves experiencing symptoms.  Gaps in care and an absence of a coordinated and comprehensive protocol in healthcare systems can lead to devastating outcomes.  Many of these gaps can be ameliorated by healthcare professionals who provide women and families with information, recognize and screen for symptoms, provide appropriate referrals and/or treatment, follow up to ensure that treatment was provided, and advocate for improved practices in their community.

A psychologist who works in the perinatal mood and anxiety disorder community will provide a brief introduction to the film.  The film will be followed by a moderated panel discussion in which community professionals and a mom-survivor will answer questions about the film and the experience working with (or in the case of the mom-survivor, being part of) this population in Southern Arizona.

 Educational Objectives:

  1. Participants will describe the barriers to identifying mothers at risk for perinatal anxiety/depression.
  2. Participants will apply this information to improve ability to recognize symptoms and develop a treatment plan for mothers with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
  3. Participants will use this information to advocate for awareness and treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.

One (1.0) hour of Continuing Education credit is available to psychologists who attend the entire program.  The Southern Arizona Psychological Association (SAPA) is approved by the American Psychological Association (APA) to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. SAPA maintains responsibility for this program and its content. This activity is also provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing for 1.2 Contact Hours.

Panelists Include:

Jennifer H. Breslin, PhD

Wen Cai, MD, PhD

Valerie Kading, MSN, NP
