TREATMENTS

What are the treatment options for PMADs?

The encouraging news is that there’s a range of health professionals and treatments to help with Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. Your primary physician or other health professionals can develop a treatment plan that’s tailored for your needs, situation, and preferences. Suggested treatments are likely to include a combination of emotional and practical support, plus psychological therapy and medication, depending on the severity of your condition.

If you or someone you know is in crisis or thinking of suicide, get help quickly.
