World Maternal Mental Health Day

Today, May 3, it's  "World Maternal Mental Health Day".   Did you know that 1 in 5 women (and also 1 in 5 men) suffer from  depression and/or anxiety in the period related to pregnancy and childbirth. We are addressing this issue within UZGent and ICRH.  In collaboration with the Mother Baby Units, we are currently developing an instrument that will help us identify the problems faster and refer people to the specialised treatment they need.
