What does DMV stand for?
The DMV is a geographical nickname for the DC-Maryland-Virginia area. Its a simple and unique identifier for our focus areas.
Our goal is to expand our focus areas in the DMV. The verification process takes time and we are diligently working to ensure the PMH Providers listed have specialized training or extensive experience with Reproductive Psychiatry, Reproductive Health, and/or Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs).
What does Perinatal mean?
We have chosen to to use Perinatal to identify the prenatal to postpartum (up to 12 months after childbirth) timeline.
What does PMH and PMADs stand for?
We have chosen to use Perinatal Mental Health (PMH) and Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) in the Resource Guide to create continuity and promote inclusivity within the PMH community among healthcare and mental health professionals, survivors, and the general public.
