The Maternal Mental Health Program at Mary’s Center for Maternal & Child Care has received a grant to provide training and education in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders to professionals throughout Washington, DC. In most cases, these trainings will be provided free of charge to trainees on-site at their workplaces, and they will offer continuing education credits toward licensure where applicable.
Program staff is currently in the process of outreaching professionals in the District, gauging interest in training, and scheduling trainings for the first half of 2016. Disciplines that are eligible for training include, but are not limited to: Physicians (obstetricians, pediatricians, internists, general practitioners); Nurses (RNs, BSNs, MSNs, PhDs, CNMs, NPs); Mental Health clinicians (psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, psychologists); Home Visitors; Lactation Consultants; Doulas; and Childbirth Educators. If you, your practice, or your organization are interested in a training, please contact Lynne McIntyre at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-545-2061. And, please feel free to spread the word
