PPHA is proud to a be a co-sponsor of the Inaugural UT Maternal Mental Health and Wellness Conference, April 27-29. The conference planning team has been working hard for over a year to put together two and a half days of wonderful programming designed to educate professionals about this important mental health issue. Our conference will begin with a perinatal mood disorder overview training followed by a full day of breakouts and keynote speakers addressing everything from psychiatric emergencies for self-care for the maternal mental health professional. The fees to attend the conference vary depending on continuing education requirements and they are clearly outlined on the registration form in the link below. Early registration ends on April 16th.
From the beginning, this dedicated conference planning team was committed to supporting the educational needs of professionals and creating a space for parents to learn and engage with each other. Through the conference, we hope to bring light the mental health needs of all parents and to ensure that they have access to qualified, well-trained medical and mental health professionals. The last day of the conference, Saturday, is full of programming geared towards parents and will include topics such as sleep deprivation to perfectionism in parenting. The fee for attending this community day (Saturday, April 29th) is $25 and includes lunch. Parents can register through the link provided below.
Throughout the day on Friday and Saturday, conference attendees can browse and visit with birthing professionals during the resource fair.
