    Learning for Professionals: Perinatal and Infant Mental Health

    Positive mental health and well-being during the perinatal period (from conception to 18 months after the baby is born) is of crucial importance for mothers, babies and their families. Mental ill-health at this time, when it is not recognised and supported / treated, can have long-term impacts on physical and mental health outcomes for mothers and babies and presents a major public health concern.

    NHS Education for Scotland (NES) has developed a range of educational and training resources to support health and social care professionals working with women, babies and families in the perinatal period.

    You can access the curricular framework and links to the e-learning modules at: https://learn.nes.nhs.scot/10382/perinatal-and-infant-mental-health

    NES is currently liaising with health visitors, midwives and other colleagues to develop further training, based on the ‘train the trainer’ model, to support primary care professionals in Scotland to become Perinatal Mental Health Champions.  Please email to nss.pmhn@nhs.scot if you’d like to find out more about this work or get involved.
