One in 5 mothers and 1 in 10 fathers in Orange County are affected by perinatal depression and anxiety within their baby’s first year of life. As these rates are expected to rise due to COVID-19 related stressors and social isolation, the Orange County Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder Collaborative has compiled resources to help all those working with young families to confidently address the issue. This webinar release will walk users through key components of the toolkit to support their ability to educate, prevent, screen, refer or treat perinatal mental health conditions.

Speakers include:

  • Clayton Chau, M.D., Ph.D., Orange County Health Care Agency Director
  • Diana E. Ramos, M.D., MPH, Orange County Medical Association President
  • Hoda Shawky, MSN, CPNP, PMHS, IBCLC, Pritzker Fellow First 5 Orange County
