New content added to the Perinatal Mental Health e-Learning programme

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has been working with the Institute of Health Visiting, the National Workforce Skills Development Unit at The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, maternity and general practice leads and HEE’s Mental Health team to add new content to the Perinatal Mental Health e-learning programme.

The Perinatal Mental Health programme is designed to help educate and develop the workforce’s confidence and competence in caring for people with perinatal mental health problems. The planned updates to the existing e-learning programme are particularly timely, aiming to support key health and care colleagues working with pregnant mothers and new parents, during the additional challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new content covers six sessions to complement the existing e-learning programme. Each of the six e-learning modules last around 20-30 minutes.

The following sessions are now available:

  • Introduction to Perinatal Mental Health 1
  • Introduction to Perinatal Mental Health 2
  • Perinatal Mental Health in the Antenatal Period
  • Perinatal Mental Health in the Postnatal Period
  • Perinatal Mental Health: Health Visitor Assessment
  • Perinatal Mental Health: Health Visitor Interventions
