Welcome to the 31st Annual Postpartum Support International Conference
"Rejuvenation and Resilience through Connection"

The 31st Annual PSI Conference will be held in Houston, Texas.  The annual PSI conference provides an opportunity to meet, learn together, and share ideas with others involved in the field of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs).  PSI will hold a 2-Day Pre-Conference Certificate Course on July 11-12, 2018 titled, “Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders: Components of Care”.  The main PSI Conference will be July 13-15*, 2018.  
*New in 2018! We have added Sunday seminars to offer a choice of in-depth expert workshops.

This professional event is a unique training and networking opportunity.  In 2017, the conference attracted more than 500 participants. The purpose of the conference is to bring together and inform medical and mental health providers, childbirth professionals, support and resource providers, caregivers, policy-makers, researchers, volunteers, families, and educators who want to improve their understanding of PMADs and improve their ability to serve pregnant, postpartum, and post pregnancy-loss families.
