Addressing Stigma Related to SUD/OUD Among Black and Latinx Mothers

July 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

SAMHSA’s Region 3 Central East Mental Health Technology Transfer Center partnered with Advocates for Human Potential, Inc.?(AHP) to develop Black and Latinx Perinatal PTSD: What Behavioral Health Providers Need to Know. This four-session virtual training series aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of perinatal post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), specifically in the context of Black and Latinx mothers. Session 4 will center on how these mothers are doubly stigmatized by their race and their substance use disorder/opioid use disorder (SUD/OUD).

Throughout the series, participants will gain knowledge and skills to support and provide culturally sensitive care to Black and Latinx mothers experiencing perinatal PTSD. Trainings will build on one another but can also stand alone, so participants can attend some or all of the trainings.


  • Examine the stigmatization of SUDs, particularly in the context of Black and Latinx communities.
  • Understand the unique challenges faced by Black and Latinx mothers with SUD/OUD during the perinatal period.
  • Develop strategies to reduce stigma and provide nonjudgmental care for Black and Latinx mothers with SUD/OUD.
