Latest progress in maternal mental health - A new consensus bundle aims to help healthcare providers implement evidence-based guidelines for the diagnosis and management of perinatal maternal mental health conditions.

"The bundle seeks to provide a framework to assist providers, regardless of clinical setting, in developing a consistent approach to screening for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and developing brief interventions as well as strategies for referral, response to emergent situations, and follow-up to ensure continuity of care," said lead author Susan Kendig, JD, MSN, from the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health, Washington, DC.

These implementation recommendations, published in the March issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology, are based on guidelines developed in 2015 by the Council on Patient Safety in Women's Health Care.
