We Saved You a Seat

Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week 2022: Part One - James Craig, MSW, LCSW

May 2, 2022

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week is Monday, May, 2 - Sunday, May 8, 2022.


Today, as we kick off Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week, We Saved You A Seat visits with James Craig, MSW, LCSW and Public Health Social Work Coordinator for the Oklahoma State Department of Health in Maternal Child Health. 


In part one of our two-part podcast release this week, James helps us define what Maternal Mental Health is and gives us a clear understanding of when we should seek additional support from professionals who specialize in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs). 


Thank you, James, for providing us with information today that helps us understand maternal mental health and equips us with the tools to know where to find the best types of support for the #1 complication of pregnancy and childbirth.
