“I work with an organization called the Canadian Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative. We knew before this that women weren’t getting screened and weren’t getting access to timely care. This is much worse now and we need to build our systems back better. We have an opportunity to look at things like telehealth so that people are getting access to timely, culturally sensitive, and evidence-based mental health care.” Read more: https://cpmhc.ca/2020/11/19/cpmhc-national-committee-member-presents-to-canadian-parliamentary-health-research-caucus/
