Mental Health During Pregnancy 

The Maternal Health Network has established community education materials for mental health during pregnancy, which highlights your provider, support systems, and mental health. These materials are available for download and are intended to be utilized by Maternal Health Network members to educate families in San Bernardino County.

The Maternal Health Network has developed a consumer presentation toolkit, compiled resources specific to mental health during pregnancy, and created video vignettes that can be used by members of the Maternal Health Network when talking with families.
 

Consumer Presentations

Before facilitating a presentation with families, please watch the Facilitator Tips and Tricks video for information on how to best communicate this information with families.

Subject matter experts provided the Maternal Health Network with what they see as the three most important things families need to know about mental health during pregnancy. Using this information, the Maternal Health Network has established a consumer presentation toolkit for providers, which includes a flyer, PowerPoint presentation with facilitator notes, an Agenda, and a training video that is intended to provide a mechanism for consistent messaging across providers for mental health during pregnancy. All materials are available for download and have space for you to add your organization’s logo on the materials should you desire.
