What will it cover?

Perinatal mental health problems affect 10 to 20% of women during pregnancy and the first year after childbirth. This session aims to provide an overview of these conditions and their impact on individuals. Participants will gain insights into the signs and symptoms of pre, post and perinatal mental health issues and explore sources of support, including signposting and self-help strategies. By the end of the training, participants are expected to have a broad understanding of perinatal mental health problems, improved confidence in engaging with individuals experiencing these issues, awareness of available services and interventions, and a commitment to promoting inclusion and challenging stigma.
