Dr. Kat on the Web!
One of my passions is to raise awareness and crush stigma about Maternal Mental Health! I’m honored to have contributed to some great work and articles! We have to keep raising our voices! Speak up where we can, listen where we can, share where we can…until every mother and every family knows how important it is to care for maternal mental health.
