I have also done several trainings in conjunction with Birth Well doula trainings founded and facilitated by Nilajah Brown.
Beyond the Baby Blues: An Overview of Perinatal Mental Health Disorders
- For Helping Professionals (Doulas, Midwives, Therapists, OB/GYN etc.)
- For Families, Caregivers, and Support
This training will give you an overview of perinatal mental health disorders including diagnostic features, symptoms, screening tools, treatment options, and local resources. This training can be tailored to be as brief or in-depth as you’d like to fit your needs.
- For Foster Care Staff
- For Foster Care youth
This training will discuss how perinatal mental health effects teen parents in the foster care system and ways for agencies to assist this population. This training can also be fitted for agencies to present to their youth and ways to help teen parents cope with perinatal mental health symptoms, treatment options, and local resources.
This presentation discusses cultural boundaries for folks of color, specifically African Americans, in discussing perinatal mental health. Attendees will learn ways to work with this population, historical factors, statistics, screening tools, treatment modalities that best suit working with POC and local resources.
If you have any questions about the walking group or training, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Agencies: If you’re interested in booking a training or presentation, please email me your request with the number of attendees and honorarium.
