This training has been developed and is being provided by the Institute of Health Visiting (iHV), with the aim of delivering perinatal and infant mental health training to a multiagency audience.The training addresses the fundamental requirements that are necessary for all those who work with mothers and their families in the perinatal period to manage mild and moderate perinatal mental illness, to understand the impact of these disorders on the infant, family and society and to know when to refer on.
Having a multi agency focus , the training aims to embed good practice and promote and strengthen local integrated care pathways, in turn supporting the opportunity for good outcomes for families affected by and at risk of perinatal and infant mental health problems, raising parity of esteem for mental health and reducing health inequalities at a local level.
Experience has shown that when practitioners at a local level have the time and space to come together to think about how to improve services, good things begin to happen. Even if you feel your role is minor, by joining up to consider how we work together the impact can be very significant for women and their families
