Perinatal Mental Health – Digital Conference

Perinatal Mental Health – Digital Conference

Perinatal mental health (PMH) problems affect around 1 in 4 new or expectant mothers, covering a wide range of conditions. The leading cause of direct maternal death in the UK is suicide, and 40% of deaths within the first year after pregnancy are related to mental health.

Despite significant increases in funding for specialised Perinatal Mental Health (PMH) services since 2016, clear gaps in services remain and women facing multiple adversities still struggle to engage with health and social services. Each agency involved with new families must prioritise PMH to ensure the health and safety of both mother and child.

Westminster Insight’s Perinatal Mental Health digital conference will raise awareness of perinatal mental health and share best practice and the latest expertise. Leaders and expert practitioners across perinatal and maternity services, mental health, social services, and the third sector will focus on early intervention and the provision of holistic PMH support.

09:00 – 13:40
