Perinatal Mental Health Education for Health Visitors


Perinatal Mental Health Education

Guidance published in April 2016 by Health Education England concludes that all women and their partners should have access within their local health visiting team to a specialist health visitor in perinatal and infant mental health. You can access the guidance here.

Three perinatal mental health eLearning modules to raise awareness of such issues are now available to for healthcare professionals who have contact with a mother or baby from the period prior to conception until the child is 1 year of age.

Modules appropriate for Health Visitors:

  • Module 1: Perinatal depression and other maternal health disorders
  • Module 2: How to recognise perinatal anxiety and depression
  • Module 3: Interventions for perinatal anxiety, depression and related disorders

There is also a link to a video entitled ‘Maria’s Story’ which tells of Maria Bavetta’s personal experience of perinatal OCD.

There are also 5 other e-learning modules available which are aimed at all those working with mothers and babies:
