Perinatal mental health training: the who, what and why?

Explore the role of training for professionals involved in the care of women and families throughout the perinatal period

With one in ten women experiencing mental health problems during or after pregnancy, it’s the responsibility of all professionals involved in their care to gain an understanding of the impact of perinatal mental illness and its associated risks. But what exactly does this mean for you?

In this webinar, originally presented by Dr Lucinda Green and Jo Brook on 27 September 2021, we explore the role of training for professionals involved in the care of women, birthing people and families throughout the perinatal period – helping you to feel more confident navigating this area in your professional role, and making informed decisions on training for yourself and your colleagues.

Drawing on a variety of clinical scenarios and case studies, our presenters outline WHO can benefit from training; WHAT should be covered; and WHY it’s needed now more than ever.
