Women’s Mental Health

In conjunction with the UMass Division of Women’s Mental Health, led by Nancy Byatt, MD, we are offering fellows a unique opportunity to participate in a Women’s Mental Health track. While completing all other requirements to be eligible for Addiction Psychiatry board certification, fellows will receive training on the evaluation and treatment of mental health and substance use disorders among pregnant and postpartum (perinatal) women. Fellows will also have the opportunity to work on population-based statewide programs focused on building the capacity of the medical community to address perinatal mental health and substance use disorders in Massachusetts (www.mcpapformoms.org) and other states (http://www.lifeline4moms.org/). Ample research opportunities in this field will be available for fellows, including supervision and mentoring from the Psychiatry department Chair Kimberly Yonkers, MD.
