About the course

This one-day masterclass is designed for non-mental healthcare professionals who work with women suffering perinatal mental health problems and wish to improve their ability to identify, assess and manage these conditions.

It has become increasingly important for healthcare professionals who care for pregnant and postnatal women across their perinatal journey to increase their knowledge of mental health in the perinatal period. Being able to assess risk and make appropriate referrals are two important skills covered in the course.

  • Describe the common and important mental health difficulties occurring during the perinatal period
  • Recognise the signs and symptoms of common and important perinatal mental health problems
