ADVOCATE FOR CHANGE

Maternal Mental Health NOW drives meaningful systemic change by promoting the adoption of robust, evidence-based practices for the prevention, screening, and treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.  We do this through our integration initiatives in Los Angeles County and by advocating for statewide legislation to ensure that all persons who are at risk, or suffering from, a perinatal mental health problem, have timely access to appropriate, quality care.

BILL IMPLEMENTATION

In 2018, Maternal Mental Health NOW and 2020 Mom co-sponsored AB 2193 (Maienschein-R) and AB 3032 (Frazier-D), two of the first bills to be passed in California that advocates for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. This guide has been created as a resource for providers who will be affected by the new legislation. It includes information about each bill, and shares resources and practices based on the lessons we’ve learned throughout Maternal Mental Health NOW’s history of working locally and beyond with physicians, health care providers and mental health clinicians, diverse community organizations and public agencies, hospitals, clinics, and many other stakeholders essential to furthering our collective mission.

…to ensure that all persons who are at risk, or suffering from, a perinatal mental health problem, have timely access to appropriate, quality care.
