Resumen

CASTRO, Filipa de et al. Provider report of the existence of detection and care of perinatal depression: quantitative evidence from public obstetric units in Mexico. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2016, vol.58, n.4, pp.468-471. ISSN 0036-3634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21149/spm.v58i4.8028.

Objective:

To provide evidence on perinatal mental healthcare in Mexico.

Materials and methods:

Descriptive and bivariate analyses of data from a cross-sectional probabilistic survey of 211 public obstetric units.

Results:

Over half (64.0%) of units offer mental healthcare; fewer offer perinatal depression (PND) detection (37.1%) and care (40.3%). More units had protocols/guidelines for PND detection and for care, respectively, in Mexico City-Mexico state (76.7%; 78.1%) than in Southern (26.5%; 36.4%), Northern (27.3%; 28.1%) and Central Mexico (50.0%; 52.7%).

Conclusion:

Protocols and provider training in PND, implementation of brief screening tools and psychosocial interventions delivered by non-clinical personnel are needed.
