"Toward the prevention of perinatal psychopathology and associated child health problems: A clinical translational research program"
This presentation will describe research aimed at reducing the burden of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and preventing associated child health complications. I will describe efforts to (1) improve identification of women at high risk for perinatal psychopathology within prenatal care settings using predictive modeling, (2) elucidate biobehavioral mechanisms through which prenatal stress and psychopathology confer risk for chronic diseases in offspring (e.g., asthma, depression), and (3) develop integrated mental health services within prenatal care settings.
