Coalitions

PSVa has launched Maternal Mental Health Coalitions around the state to convene local stakeholders with the ambitious goal of universal education, screening, referral, and treatment for all childbearing women for PMADs in a given location.

Each Coalition is hosted by a local hospital, meets monthly for 4-6 months, then moves to quarterly maintenance meetings.  PSVa provides a 9-hour curriculum in PMADs and helps create resources for affected women, including launching support groups and identifying / training mental health providers who have expertise in treating PMADs.

PSVa has launched Coalitions in Charlottesville, Hampton / Newport News, Harrisonburg, Lynchburg, Richmond, Williamsburg, and Woodbridge.

 

The following individuals and organizations are included in each Coalition:

  • Maternal-child healthcare providers: obstetric, pediatric, and family physicians; midwives; hospital administrators and nursing staff
  • Mental health professionals: psychiatrist and psychiatric prescribers; psychologist, social workers, and therapists
  • Birth and postpartum providers: doulas, lactation consultants, childbirth educators
  • Early Impact Virginia staff and other home visiting programs

 

For more information about Coalitions, please contact Lydia Anderson.

Greater Richmond Maternal Mental Health Coalition

The Greater Richmond Maternal Mental Health Coalition (GRMMC) was launched in mid-2017 to to create a community-wide comprehensive coordinated approach to addressing perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs). GRMMC is comprised of all stakeholders with touchpoints with women during pregnancy and first year postpartum, including maternal-child healthcare providers, birth and postpartum professionals, and mental health providers. GRMMC has met monthly and is creating a plan to educate, screen, and treat all childbearing women in Greater Richmond for PMADs and ensure all women have access to help.
