iHV Perinatal Mental Health Conference in association with RSPH – Perinatal Mental Health, a priority for public health

12th November 2013

It is now known that perinatal mental illness can have significant long term public health and societal consequences when it goes undiagnosed and without intervention.

This conference is a joint event from the Institute of Health Visiting and their founding partner the Royal Society for Public Health. This conference will consider the effects of perinatal mental illness ante and postnatally on the infant, the mother, the father and on society and how these can be reduced. It will also share some important new national developments in the field which have been designed to reduce its impact. The day will take a public health perspective to a very common condition suffered by at least one in seven mothers.
