Perinatal mental health

Our courses have at their core a desire to ensure that women meet skilled, confident professionals across the perinatal mental health care pathway

Our perinatal courses have at their core a desire to ensure that women meet professionals across the whole perinatal mental health care pathway who have the skills, competencies and expertise to identify, refer, assess, treat and manage their conditions as effectively as possible.

Our perinatal continuing professional development courses will help you to develop your skills, knowledge and abilities in these areas.

In addition to accessing Tavistock expertise, the delivery of the training courses draws on contemporary specialist perinatal mental health practitioners working as visiting lecturers in collaboration with the Tavistock and Portman.

“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”
