A groundbreaking conference for Black-identifying clinicians and providers to increase the capacity and competency of the community so that Black families have more opportunities to find specialized perinatal providers who look like them and with whom they can relate. ***PLEASE NOTE: NO PARTIAL CE/CME/PMH-C CREDIT PROVIDED - Participants must attend all 4 days to get credit for attending.
We are thrilled to announce a groundbreaking conference for Black-identifying birth workers, providers and clinicians in the Los Angeles County area. The “2021 Perinatal Mental Health Conference for Black Birth Workers, Providers, and Clinicians” will take place virtually over four weeks, 4/30, 5/7, 5/14, and 5/21, from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm each day. Tickets are free to Black birth workers in the Los Angeles area and include a commitment to attend all four LIVE conference days.
Our mission is to engage Black clinicians and providers to increase the capacity and competency of the community. Our goal is that Black families will have more opportunities to find specialized perinatal providers who look like them and with whom they can relate. We will present foundational knowledge on perinatal mental health care through a culturally-informed lens. We want to assist the community in building concrete skills and tools to more adequately address the mental health needs of Black women and birthing people and aim to address this specifically within the Los Angeles County area.

Tickets are free to Black birth workers in the Los Angeles area. We are currently only able to offer live conference seats to those serving clients in Los Angeles County. We hope to extend the training and content to others in various ways over the upcoming year. For those who do not meet this criteria, recording of the full conference will be available to purchase for $199 once the conference is over. There will be scholarships available for BIPOC identifying providers. If you are interested in purchasing the recording once available, please click here.
This project is funded in part by L.A. Care Health Plan and will benefit low-income and uninsured residents of Los Angeles County.
