This program is produced in partnership with the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) and The Policy Center for Maternal Mental Health
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Sage Therapeutics, Inc.

It’s not just the baby blues. Women can develop postpartum depression (PPD) during pregnancy or after delivery and can be overwhelmed by intense and ongoing feelings of despair, anxiety, and sadness. PPD impacts not only mothers, but their families, as well. A mother’s bad feelings may get even worse if her doctor overlooks the PPD.

Join us on Friday, March 24 at 12:00 PM for a live webinar on faster diagnosis and treatment of PPD. You’ll hear from an expert panel featuring an OB-GYN, a psychiatrist, and a patient advocate fromThe Policy Center for Maternal Mental Health, a national organization focused on maternal mental health disorders, such as PPD.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Causes and risk factors for PPD
  • Signs and symptoms
  • Screening
  • Approved medications
  • Treatments on the horizon
  • Patient-support resources

The panel will also answer questions from the audience during the webinar. You can submit your questions in advance by clicking here.
