Perinatal Mental Health programme features new resources

The Perinatal Mental Health elearning programme has now expanded to include 2 new sessions for parent-infant practitioners and colleagues in specialist perinatal mental health services.

Perinatal and Infant Mental Health created in partnership with NHS England, Parent-Infant Foundation and key partners, is designed to enhance awareness about perinatal mental health for parent-infant practitioners working in settings supporting women during pregnancy and up to 24 months after birth, including maternity services, primary care, charities, and community groups.

The session will help to ensure the wider health and care workforce has access to the right knowledge and skills in perinatal mental healthcare enabling them to deliver quality care, support and treatment for mum, baby and family members, wherever they are.

Routine Outcome Measurement in Specialist Perinatal Mental Health Services offers tools, tips and information to help in implementing routine outcome measurement (ROM) in SPMHS and maternity settings.

The session, which has been co-developed by NHS England, will benefit practitioners across SPMHS and maternity services by helping them to incorporate the outcome measures into conversations with patients.

The 2 new sessions complement 3 existing elearning courses which focus on perinatal health for health visitors, occupational therapists and the competency framework.

For more information and to access the new and existing sessions, please visit the Perinatal Mental Health programme page.
