We are thrilled to announce a groundbreaking conference for Black-identifying birth workers, providers and clinicians in the Los Angeles County area. The “2021 Perinatal Mental Health Conference for Black Birth Workers, Providers, and Clinicians” is a 4-part virtual event, 4/30, 5/7, 5/14, and 5/21, from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm each day. Tickets are free to Black birth workers in the Los Angeles area.
Our mission is to engage Black clinicians and providers to increase the capacity and competency of the community. Our goal is that Black families will have more opportunities to find specialized perinatal providers who look like them and with whom they can relate. We will present foundational knowledge on perinatal mental health care through a culturally-informed lens. We want to assist the community in building concrete skills and tools to more adequately address the mental health needs of Black women and birthing people and aim to address this specifically within the Los Angeles County area.

Tickets are free to Black birth workers in the Los Angeles area for the virtual event. We are currently only able to offer conference seats to those working in Los Angeles County or primarily serving clients in Los Angeles County. We hope to extend the training and content to others in various ways over the upcoming year.
Recording of the full conference will be available to purchase for $199 once the conference is over. There will be scholarships available for BIPOC identifying providers. If you are interested in purchasing the recording once available, please click here.
This conference training is approved as a prerequisite for the PMH-C exam by Postpartum Support International. This event is also approved for CE and CME credit. Please view the conference brochure for full accreditation details.
This project is funded in part by L.A. Care Health Plan and will benefit low-income and uninsured residents of Los Angeles County.
