Kristin Horsley

I hold a PhD in Clinical Health Psychology from McGill University and am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at McMaster University and with The Society of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists of Canada. As a Board Member for the Canadian Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative (CPMHC), I am excited to be working closely with a passionate group of people toward our common goal of improving perinatal mental health care in Canada. I will bring to this position my research and clinical experience in understanding the barriers, and facilitators, to the integration of perinatal mental health screening, assessment, and services into our existing healthcare framework. I hope to contribute to, and support, strategic planning and initiatives aligned with the mission of advocating for a national perinatal mental health strategy. As both a clinician and researcher, I want to see innovative models of psychological care being integrated into obstetrical settings so that we can ultimately understand how to best implement universal screening, assessment, and evidence-based treatment for perinatal mental illness.
