Mental Health

The Department of Psychiatry has compiled a collection of resources to support the mental health and emotional wellbeing of our community during this difficult time. Visit the their COVID-19 Mental Health Resource Guide, which includes support for families and children.

Learn more about perinatal mood disorders in an episode from the Women’s Healthcast, a podcast from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. In this episode, Beyond Baby Blues, Dr. Julianne Zweifel discusses common perinatal mood disorders like postpartum depression and anxiety, what we know about the causes of perinatal mood disorders, and the variety of available treatments including at-home and personal interventions.

Changes to Health Care Services

Health services may change. Stay up to date on changes at your clinic and hospital by visiting their website. UW Health patients can visit the UW Health COVID-19 Resources page.

Recommendations for prenatal care, delivery, and postpartum care are changing as we know more about COVID-19’s effects on people who are pregnant and infants. There currently are no recommendations specific to pregnant women regarding the evaluation or management of COVID-19. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have published a COVID-19 Practice Advisory for optimizing care for pregnant people and infants and a COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions for Obstetrician-Gynecologists and Obstetricians.
