1 in 7 mothers/birthing people and 1 in 10 fathers/partners suffer from a PMAD during the perinatal period.
We consider these numbers to be a public health crisis. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), roughly 4 million people give birth in the United States each year. Following prevalence rates for PMADs, that means 800,000 (20%) out of the 4 million will suffer and only 160,000 (20%) will receive treatment. This leaves 600,000 (75%) unidentified and untreated yearly. Screening can help mitigate these numbers.
