2019 Annual Forum – February 8, 2019

One of the many ways that 2020 Mom carries out our mission is by convening thought leaders and stakeholders like you at our annual forum. Together we discover and discuss emerging considerations in pregnancy-related mental health care. It's in these settings that we can contemplate new research, learn about successful strategies and impactful programs, help you grow your network, and together discuss pathways to improving access to treatment, detection and early intervention, through policy and advocacy.
