This national perinatal mental health conference will provide you with practical information and inspiration to take back to your organisation and utilise in implementing and improving perinatal mental health care in line with the 5 Year Forward View.

The 2017 National NHS Programme for Perinatal Mental Health aims to help an extra 30,000 new or expectant mums who experience serious mental ill health, offering them the right care at the right time. Initially NHS England has launched a £5m Perinatal Community Services Development Fund to help close a wide gap in the availability of high quality care for women with severe or complex conditions: fewer than 15 per cent of areas currently provide services to levels recommended in national guidelines, and more than 40 per cent provide no service at all.

“We absolutely need to ensure that all women have the access to high quality perinatal mental health care and are committed to addressing current issues and variation. If left untreated, it can have a devastating impact on the woman affected and her family. I am delighted that we can use this fund to build capacity in the community, focusing on what works really well for women and their families and how we can help to spread some of this good practice to other parts of the country speedily and to best effect.” Dr Giles Berrisford, Associate National Clinical Director for Perinatal Mental Health

By attending this one day conference, you will hear talks from expert speakers at local and national level, your chair for the day will be Elaine Hanzak, a Survivor of Postnatal Depression and Author of Eyes without Sparkle and Another Twinkle in the Eye– ‘contemplating another pregnancy after perinatal mental illness’. 

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues working to improve the quality of perinatal mental health services 
  • Understand and reflect on what you need to do, to improve the access and quality of your service 
  • Learn from established practice in delivering excellent perinatal mental health care 
  • Understand how you can better support patients experiencing perinatal mental health issues
  • Update your knowledge on national and local developments
  • Identify key strategies for improving perinatal mental health services
  • Examine your role in improving the quality of perinatal mental health care
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence 

“The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health is clear in its objective that specialist perinatal mental health services should be available for all women and their families who need them. Over the course of this programme to 2020/21, this requires a significant increase in access in most areas of England – since only 15% of localities are thought to have services which fully meet NICE guidelines.” Five Year Forward View for Mental Health: One Year On February 2017
