Perinatal Mental Health and the Military Family Identifying and Treating Mood and Anxiety Disorders
This multi-disciplinary resource provides an overview of perinatal mental and physical health issues within the military population. Perinatal mental health has far-reaching implications for military readiness. The text provides insights to the effects of military culture on identification, evaluation, and treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and is an invaluable resource for military and civilian primary and behavioral health providers.
“There is very little focus given to perinatal mental health and there are few providers who feel comfortable treating these women with psychotropic medications. But it is a significant need. Thus, programs that choose to focus their work on perinatal mental health tend to stand out and have an important place in the medical and psychological literature. The fact this this book addresses both pharmacological treatments, self-help, and psychological treatments adds to its relevance and publishability.”—Amy Cameron, PhD, assistant professor, Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University
