The Maternal Mental Health and Wellness Conference:  April 27-29, 2017

    I have had the honor of serving on a planning committee at the University of Texas School of Social Work as they set out to host the inaugural Maternal Mental Health and Wellness Conference for the central Texas area.  This conference will be an opportunity for all sorts of disciplines to come together and learn more about perinatal mood disorders and treatment strategies.  Furthermore, this conference will be open for parents in the community to attend so that they can also learn about maternal mental health and self-care strategies.  The planning committee is committed to making the topics that are presented relevant to the community and has created a short survey to help them accomplish that goal. Please take a moment to read the information below and take this short survey.  

    The planning committee of the 2017 Texas Maternal Mental Health and Wellness Conference, co-sponsored by The University of Texas School of Social Work and the Pregnancy and Postpartum Health Alliance of Texas (PPHA TX) invites you to complete a quick survey.
