Capital Public Radio: Mental health care could get easier for new moms under new California rules
OBHG's Medical Director of Operations, Dr. Alissa Erogbogbo, shares her perspective on affordable, reliable maternal mental health treatment, related to a new California mental health law going into effect in January.
“We still have an issue with access to care, and really making sure we supply these women, after they deliver, the support that they need,” said Dr. Erogbogbo in the article. “Because it doesn’t end after that pregnancy, it doesn’t end after that postpartum period. These patients do need follow-up, and they need someone they can go to reliably, to make sure that someone is taking care of them and hearing their concerns.”
