What an amazing day we had at iHV’s annual PIMH conference – Perinatal and Infant Mental Health: Relationships Matters! – #iHVPIMH19

Held on 10 September in London, the second annual iHV PIMH conference was in collaboration with the Maternal Mental Health Alliance.  The conference created time to prioritise and place relationships at the heart of perinatal and infant mental health care. We shared, discussed and reflected together on the latest evidence, research and experiences of PIMH care in the context of relationships being fundamental to good parental and infant mental health.

Sold out several weeks ago, we had a full house of 200. “Inspiring, very interesting, thought provoking, insightful, really enjoyable, fantastic, hopeful, excellent” – just some of the feedback that we’ve received.

A big thank you to all our speakers, presenters and exhibitors for helping to make the day.
