Multi-Agency Fathers and Perinatal Mental Health Champions training – NEW!!

Aim of Multi-Agency Fathers and Perinatal Mental Health Champions training:

The programme is designed to build advocacy for parental mental health amongst practitioners working perinatally with families by improving knowledge about the mental health of fathers in the perinatal period. The training aims to enable them to develop both the mindset and the skills required to engage effectively and work successfully in partnership with fathers to foster good paternal, infant and family mental health. As with our other Champions programmes, the Champion becomes a local resource for the subject and is equipped with materials needed to deliver a cascade of multi-agency Awareness level training to their colleagues to support their practice.

Participating in this training will equip you for the Fathers and PMH Champion role over the following modules:

  • Role of fathers and transition to fatherhood
  • Contemporary policy and research related to paternal mental health
  • Impact of paternal mental illness on the father and his family
  • Recognition and detection of paternal perinatal mental illness
  • Challenges, risks and responsibilities relating to paternal mental illness
  • Building father-inclusive services and engaging fathers through father-inclusive practice

We are currently seeking external accreditation for this programme by the CPD Standards Office as one of the mechanisms of high quality training.
