Perinatal Mental Health: An Interdisciplinary Approach

This series meets Tuesdays (weekly) from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm MT.


This ECHO series is designed to support physicians, physician assistants, and advance practice nurses who care for pregnant patients in the evaluation and treatment of common mental health conditions presenting in the perinatal period.  Facilitated by a multidisciplinary team including obstetrician gynecologists, perinatal psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers, each session will include a brief presentation by an expert followed by participant-submitted cases.   Participants will gain confidence and knowledge in addressing the perinatal mental health needs of their patients while building connections with their peers.


  1. Discuss the breadth of mental health conditions that manifest in women across the perinatal period.
  2. Conduct detailed informed consent discussions with women across the perinatal period regarding use of psychotropic medications.
  3. Collaborate with other providers in the treatment and management of women suffering from mental health issues during the perinatal period.
