Arizona Perinatal Psychiatry Access Line
APAL is a statewide perinatal psychiatry access line. We assist medical providers in caring for their pregnant and postpartum patients with mental health and substance use disorders. Perinatal psychiatrists are available by phone, Monday-Friday from 12:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m., to answer provider questions and review treatment options.
Mission Statement: To reduce maternal mortality by guiding frontline healthcare providers – in real time – in psychiatric management so they may give high-quality care to their patients with perinatal psychiatric disorders and reproductive mental health concerns.
