What is Support Delivered?
- An education and awareness campaign about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs).
- An umbrella of coordinated supports and services available to Vermonters.
Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) are a group of symptoms that can occur during pregnancy and the postpartum period, causing emotional and physical concerns that make it hard to enjoy life and function well.
PMADs are common, treatable, and are the leading complication of childbirth. PMADs can have serious impacts on parental health and well-being as well as children’s development. Find information below on PMADS, as well as resources across the state providing support to individuals struggling with PMADs.
