Discovery Radio – Episode #39 – The Periscope Project

Managing medications for treatment of behavioral health issues or addiction disorders can be challenging. But, imagine the added challenge of managing medications for women with these conditions who are pregnant or who have recently given birth.

On today’s show, we’ll learn about a new initiative aimed at providing critical perinatal psychiatric expertise and resources for care providers of expecting and new mothers, and the high hopes for its success and growth.

It’s a look at treating the behavioral health and addiction disorder needs of pregnant and postpartum patients through The Periscope Project, inside this edition of CTSI Discovery Radio!
