With one in ten women experiencing mental health problems during or after pregnancy, it’s the responsibility of all professionals involved in their care to gain an understanding of the impact of perinatal mental illness and its associated risks. But what exactly does this mean for you?

In this webinar recording, we explore the role of training for professionals involved in the care of women and families throughout the perinatal period – helping you to feel more confident navigating this area in your professional role, and making informed decisions on training for yourself and your colleagues. Drawing on a variety of clinical scenarios and case studies, our presenters outline WHO can benefit from training; WHAT should be covered; and WHY it’s needed now more than ever.

After watching this webinar recording, you will:

  • Be more aware of the range of perinatal mental disorders that professionals need to learn about, and the impact these can have on women and families during the perinatal period and beyond. 
  • Have gained a deeper understanding of how targeted training can help professionals in different roles and at different points throughout the perinatal care pathway.
  • Feel more confident navigating different types of training, and identifying which training is right for you and your colleagues, in the context of the expansion of perinatal mental health services related to the NHS Long Term Plan.
