Members in Action Case Study: Treating Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders in Rural Montana

St. Peter’s Health, Helena, Mont.

St. Peter’s Health, a non-profit health system in Helena, Montana, serves over 97,000 residents across five counties. In 2017, the rise of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, such as depression, postpartum psychosis and postpartum PTSD, prompted St. Peter’s Health to recognize gaps in postpartum care. The system’s Taking Care of You program connected more than 300 patients experiencing perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, and their families, with community resources to support their needs. An effort in partnership with Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies, the Montana Coalition Inc.
