The purpose of the conference is to bring together and inform medical and mental health providers, childbirth professionals, support and resource providers, caregivers, policy-makers, researchers, volunteers, families, and educators who want to improve their understanding of PMADs and improve their ability to serve childbearing families. CE, CME, CLE, and CERP credits pending.
Postpartum Support International and NAMI Minnesota are excited to be co-sponsoring the PSI annual conference in collaboration with Pregnancy and Postpartum Support Minnesota (PPSM).

I was pleased to attend the PSI annual conference in my hometown of Pittsburgh in 2010, at which I also participated in the training.  I highly recommend ALL professionals, and any advocates who are able to, make it a priority to attend.
