Women with schizophrenia who become pregnant face many struggles and challenges, not only during their pregnancies, but also in the time leading up to becoming pregnant and after pregnancy. The goal of this training program is to effectively train providers who work with women in this population. Specifically, how to provided needed services and support during pregnancy, how to identify and utilize interventions when women with schizophrenia participate in high risk sexual behavior, and understand the many health, mental health, and socioeconomic barriers that women in the population experience.
