Nearly half a million women per year will develop a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMAD), yet few are diagnosed, treated, or achieve remission of symptoms. Untreated PMADs pose serious risks to mothers, their children, and our communities, with effects that stretch beyond the perinatal period. There is data to support the safety and efficacy of available medications during pregnancy and nursing, yet many prescribers are hesitant to use them. From this session, providers will gain confidence and comfort treating their patients based on the latest data and will learn about collaborative resources available in North Carolina to support them.
