Recognising and responding to women with perinatal mental health conditions requires enhanced knowledge and skills. By closely assessing for change and interpreting early signs of psychological decline, healthcare professionals are more likely to identify deterioration and accelerate care in a timely and appropriate manner. The Certificate in Perinatal Mental Health will allow healthcare providers to develop their knowledge and skills in the recognition, assessment, care/referral and evaluation of women in this regard.
The aim of the Certificate in Perinatal Mental Health is to empower health care professionals with the knowledge and skills to develop their expertise in supporting women experiencing perinatal mental health issues and to work collaboratively with their family and the multidisciplinary team in promoting evidence based compassionate care that empowers women and aids their individualised recovery.
This Certificate in Perinatal Mental Health will be of particular interest to health professionals whose work may bring them into contact with women experiencing perinatal mental health issues.
