NEEDED! Maternal Mental Health for Saskatchewan pregnant women.

This petition had 1,742 supporters

The Saskatchewan Maternal Mental Health Implementation Committee has made strides to improve awareness, promote identification, and access to some services for maternal mental health in Saskatchewan.  Screening of pregnant women for depression and anxiety remains a huge gap. Closing this gap would identify women as soon as possible, begin treatment early, avoid potential health risks to baby and mother, postpartum depression, and the impact on the family. We are requesting that the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health add the "EPDS Screen & Care Guide" to the provincial electronic Prenatal Checklist for Doctors and Obstetricians, as soon as possible, to support our mothers and families, first!
