Aims: This session aims to upskill the mental health workforce to support women with perinatal mental health problems. We will also explore issues using complex case scenarios focussing on safeguarding issues: such as Domestic violence and substance misuse in the prenatal period. It will be of interest to mental health and social care professionals working in inpatient and community settings.
This workshop provides participants with the opportunity to develop their awareness of the causes, diagnosis, clinical presentation, assessment, and management of mental illness.
A fundamental objective of the Mental Health Five Year Forward Plan is that by 2020/21, there will be improved access to specialist perinatal mental health provision in England. This strategy is in direct result of evidenced difference and disparity in the provision and access to expert perinatal mental health services across the country.
This workshop will equip mental health professionals with the basic skills, knowledge, and confidence to work with women who have perinatal mental health problems.
