Perinatal mental health challenges (e.g., depression) can lead to serious health consequences for women. However, few women receive adequate care to address these challenges. Collaborative care programs–which deliver mental health treatment within primary care settings–can improve mental health outcomes, but high demand for treatment limits providers’ capacity to deliver the care that women need for their perinatal mental health. This presentation explores how technology-enabled services can be designed to enhance collaborative care programs and improve the quality of perinatal mental health services.
