About the course

CPD: equivalent to 6 hours CPD

This one-day, online course will give clinicians the basic knowledge and skills required to feel confident in beginning to practice in a perinatal mental health setting.

Perinatal mental health services have been expanding nationally and working in this area can require a unique set of knowledge and skills for clinicians to deliver safe, effective, and evidence-based care.

This interesting and rewarding field of mental health has attracted many mental health nurses, occupational therapists, nursery nurses, social workers, and psychologists who have typically come from different backgrounds within mental health.
