COVID has exposed and exacerbated behavioral health disparities experienced by minority and vulnerable populations, including pregnant and post-partum women, their children, and families. This webinar explores the intersection of COVID, health disparities, and integrated behavioral health care within a maternal child health context. Presenter Rhonda Waller brings more than 25 years of experience in maternal and child health, education, and human services with an emphasis on program development, leadership development, capacity building, and training and technical assistance. She will discuss recent behavioral health data trends within this population, outline opportunities for providing behavioral health care within a health center setting, and offer integrated behavioral health care strategies to reduce health disparities and improve health outcomes for both mother and child.
