Perinatal mental health

Develop expertise to enhance the care you provide

We have supported the development of the UK’s perinatal mental health workforce through the delivery of specialist CPD and postgraduate training since 2017.

Our renowned training courses seek to ensure that professionals across the whole perinatal mental health care pathway have the skills, competencies and expertise needed to support women and birthing people experiencing mental illness during the perinatal period.

We offer a comprehensive programme of training for a range of practitioners who work with women, birthing people and their families during the perinatal period – from accessible, online introductory courses through to more in-depth, specialist training.

With an emphasis on experiential learning, our courses will deepen your understanding of the complex difficulties women, birthing people and their families can face before and after birth. You’ll develop your capacity for skilful intervention and be empowered to drive service improvements.

“It was a fantastic two days which covered so many important areas to support all the practitioners who attended in their understanding of perinatal mental health and gave opportunities and the time for questions to be asked to deepen their learning. I’ve received excellent feedback from those staff I have spoken to today and I know that lots of the course material will continue resonating many weeks after for all of us”
