2020 Mom Annual Forum

Bright Beginnings Advocacy, Community, Events

Recap | February 12-13

The Monterey County Maternal Mental Health Task Force hosted the Maternal Mental Health Forum Webcast on February 12th and 13th. The webcast provided local providers, social workers, policymakers, and change-agents a chance to learn how we can all do more for Maternal Mental Health Care and to close gaps through education, collaboration, and advocacy. 

The forum was held at three locations, Marina, Salinas, and Soledad, with a combined attendance of approximately 70 individuals. Attendees shared positive feedback and task force members noted high-quality content such as acknowledging the gap between coordination of care, communication, and access to care. Medical professionals also noted the knowledge and stories from the forum will help the way they interact with clients and advocacy.
