Perinatal mental illnesses are common, in particular to patients with previous known severe mental illness. When unwell they can be a risk to themselves as well as to their offspring and their illness can negatively impact infant development and bonding/attachment of the mother and baby dyad. There are extensive guidelines and guidance on assessment, management and treatment of perinatal mental illness, which we will look at.
Dr Catia Acosta, Consultant Psychiatrist at Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust Perinatal Service will teach you how identify and assess those at high risks of perinatal mental ill health; look at the different types of perinatal mental illness and its consequences and risks. You will also look at how/when to assess and treatment these mothers as well as how develop mental illness post natal, in order to prevent as well as treat effectively women and reduce negative impact they may have on the offspring.
After attending this course delegates will be able to:
- Identify and assess those at high risks of perinatal mental illness
- Devise a perinatal care plan and assess and manage risks post natal
- Manage and treat those that relapse or become unwell
