On Time Delivery: Optimizing Access to Care for Pregnant Women with SUD or Mental Health Conditions

Thursday, August 22, 1:30 pm – 3 pm
Maternal health, particularly maternal mental health, has recently come into greater public focus. As the opioid epidemic continues to spread, states are seeking strategies to sufficiently meet the unique needs of mothers affected by substance use disorder (SUD), polysubstance use, and mental health conditions. This session features presentations from three states that have implemented innovative policy strategies to address these concerns. Topics include increasing stakeholder buy-in, integrating data, and improving care delivery.
