Black Maternal Mental Health – Understanding the Maternity Journey for Women of Color
1 in 3 black women are at risk for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders in comparison to 1 in 7 non-black women. Black women are faced with risk factors such as racism/discrimination, impaired trust in the medical system, and even the side effects of a global pandemic which critically impacts their mental health. Black women are 3-4 times more likely to die in childbirth than white women. The CDC says that 60% of those deaths are preventable. This course is designed to equip and educate clinicians to be culturally competent when working with mothers of color that are suffering from maternal mental health. While also providing culturally adequate resources, interventions, and support to clients to decrease risk factors and break the stigma of mental health.
