Presenter:
Alexis Wesley, MD – Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellow, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Children’s National Hospital

Summary:
Many pediatricians chose their discipline for their passion with working with children. However, it is critical to consider the larger family unit when addressing the overall wellbeing of a child, particularly as it pertains to the maternal-child dyad. This webinar will address the close link between a mother’s psychological state, and the physical & emotional development of her child. It will additionally address the importance incorporating maternal mental health screening, and having basic knowledge of mental health signs/symptoms/treatment options as it relates to pregnant teenagers.

Learning objectives:
1. Participants will be able to describe the impacts of maternal mental health on a child’s development
2. Participants will better understand the mental health consequences of teen pregnancy and the subsequent impacts on the child
3. Participants will be able to describe the signs and symptoms of mood disorders during pregnancy / postpartum period, and be aware of screening and treatment options
4. Participants will better understand the mental health consequences of maternal and infant morbidity/mortality as is relates to racial inequities in healthcare
