Multi-Agency Perinatal Mental Health Champions Training
Aim of Perinatal Mental Health (PMH) Champions training:
The programme is designed to build advocacy for perinatal mental health amongst a multi-agency audience, developing an understanding of the evidence around PMH and equipping the Champion with materials to deliver a cascade of multi-agency PMH Awareness level training for colleagues.

- Perinatal mental illness and why it matters
- Recognition and detection of perinatal mental illness
- Impact of parental mental health on the infant
- Safeguarding and risk
- Networks and pathways
