2Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: Screening and Treatment of Anxiety and Depression (STAND)Experimental Treatment2 Interventions
This treatment condition provides access to a system of care, in which type of treatment is allocated based on presenting symptomatology. Participants will learn their allocation from study staff or participants will create a secure account through STAND to learn about their allocation through the STAND online dashboard. Through their STAND online dashboard, they could also have access to a) their CAT-MH results over time from the start of treatment, b) assessment of their current diet/nutrition and psychoeducation about the relationship between diet/nutrition and mental health, and c) list of additional resources available to them.
Group II: Treatment as usual (TAU, a.k.a. Perinatal Psychiatric Care)Active Control1 Intervention
This treatment condition is modelled after the psychiatry-delivered treatment usually provided at the Maternal Outpatient Mental Health Services (MOMS) Clinic associated with the UCLA Westwood OB-GYN Clinic and Department of Psychiatry.
