“Mental health service provision should be needs-led, responsive and delivered in a way that empowers people to build on their strengths, promotes recovery, supports families and carers, and ensures equality and fairness for all….While there has been real progress nationally in improving access to perinatal mental health services, work now needs to be done to reduce unwarranted variation and inequity in the provision of specialist services.” The Perinatal Mental Health Care Pathways, The National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health May 2018

This National Perinatal Mental Health Summit focuses specifically on implementing the 2018 National Perinatal Mental Health Care Pathways. The five pathways announced in May 2018 focus on Preconception advice, Specialist assessment , Emergency assessment, Psychological interventions and Inpatient care.

“This implementation guidance is an important tool that helps us develop better perinatal mental health services consistently across England. It sets out five new pathways outlining timely access to evidence-based care. Each pathway captures a different aspect of care, depending on the mental health problem and the phase of pregnancy.”  Jo Black and Giles Berrisford, Associate National Clinical Directors for Perinatal Mental Health, May 2018

“Timely access to good-quality perinatal mental health care can provide a range of long-term gains for the woman, the baby/child and wider society. These include:

  • improving recovery rates and outcomes for women and their children, including reducing the risk of adverse psychological, social, parenting and employment outcomes
  • reducing the risk of premature births and stillbirths, obstetric complications and delayed physical growth in the developing baby
  • reducing the risk of behavioural and emotional problems for the child later in life, and the likelihood of lower IQ and lower educational attainment
  • reducing wider societal costs – of the £8.1 billion described above, almost £6 billion relates to the impact on the child rather than the mother.”  The Perinatal Mental Health Care Pathways, The National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health May 2018
