Perinatal Mental Health Conference: improving access to maternal mental health services
“Around one in four women experience mental health problems in pregnancy and during the 24 months after giving birth. The consequences of not accessing high-quality perinatal mental health care are estimated to cost the NHS and social care £1.2 billion per year” - NHS Long Term Plan
Perinatal mental health is a key Government priority. NHS England aims to support at least 30,000 more women each year to access specialist mental health care during the perinatal period by 2020. This includes psychological therapies, a range of specialist community care or inpatient care.
The sixth annual Perinatal Mental Health Conference: improving access to maternal mental health services will help you to develop a greater understanding of how the Long-Term Plan will improve access to and the quality of perinatal mental health care for mothers, their partners and children. The programme will be based on the NHS Long-Term Plan, built around the key themes of increasing access to maternal mental health services including specialist services and interventions for mothers, partners and children.
Join us at the Perinatal Mental Health Conference to hear the latest developments in improving access to maternal mental health services across the UK, and examples of best practice from leading organisations across the health and social care sector. You will have the opportunity to question, discuss and debate the very latest policies, projects and emerging models of care, as well as sharing your own stories and experiences with the conference.
