Posted on: 10/11/2017

One in seven women will experience perinatal depression during pregnancy or in the first 12 months after delivery. If left untreated, this condition can have devastating consequences for women and their babies.

Are you aware of what Illinois law requires of licensed health care professionals relating to perinatal mental health disorders?

If you provide prenatal or postnatal care, or well-baby checks prior to the child’s first birthday, learn more by accessing ISMS' medical legal guideline: Mandatory Prenatal and Postpartum Depression Education and Assessment.*
