PeriPAN Perinatal Mental Health Toolkit for Obstetric Clinicians

PeriPAN Program Resources

The PeriPAN Mental Health OB Toolkit is a resource for perinatal care providers with actionable information to build capacity for preventing, identifying, treating, and monitoring perinatal mood and anxiety conditions. It includes clinical guidance on common perinatal mental health conditions with patient screening tools; clinician resources for screening, symptom and risk assessment, treatment initiation, monitoring, follow-up, and management of mood disorders; and materials to support clinicians in mental health care practices and protocols. We also provide patient resources, such as an action plan for mood changes, a safety plan, and a self-care plan.
