Exposure to marginalization by race and place increases the risk of mental health and substance use disorders and presents additional barriers to access to high-quality care. Individuals who are Black, Latinx, or in a lower socioeconomic situation are least likely to be screened, identified, and receive mental health treatment, exacerbating mental health disparities in the perinatal period.
In this interactive session, the perinatal mental health care pathway will be used as a scaffolding on which to highlight recent inequities experienced by persons of color regarding perinatal mental health, and to brainstorm opportunities to address and mitigate them.
Presenters: Karen Tabb Dina, associate professor and
Mai Hoang, assistant professor
