The Louisiana Mental Health Perinatal Partners (LAMhPP) program provides consultation to ALL health care clinicians serving pregnant and postpartum women and their families across the state of Louisiana, including OB-GYNs, Family Physicians, Pediatricians, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, doulas, general psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, LPCs, and others.  

Our goal:  The goal of LAMhPP is to improve access to treatment for women by promoting maternal and child health by building the capacity of their health care providers to effectively identify and reduce risks, provide first line management of perinatal mental health and substance use disorders, and connect with additional community resources.

Who we are: We are mental health providers: child psychiatrists, pediatrician-child psychiatrists, perinatal mental health specialist and resource/referral specialist.

LAMhPP supports health care clinicians to address perinatal depression, anxiety, and related disorders (substance use disorders, interpersonal violence, etc.) by offering providers:

Real-time telephone consultation

  • A clinician will be able to call LAMhpp at 504-988-9171 and talk immediately to a care coordinator or mental health professional  who will triage calls, address resource questions, provide information about community and web-based resources and connect the clinician with a LAMhPP psychiatrist for clinical questions.
     
  • Address the provider’s clinical questions including early identification, screening, effective office based interventions, therapy and medication approaches.
     
  • Link with our resource specialist to provide information about community resources
     
  • In rare cases, offer a telehealth consult with the patient and provider.
