Event description
A half-day session giving an overview of parental and infant mental health in the perinatal period and the mental health of fathers.

About this event

We are delighted to be able to offer a series of half-day sessions to raise awareness of perinatal and infant mental health in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale.

Each session is based on the Institute of Health Visiting's Perinatal Mental & Infant Mental Health Multi-Agency Awareness Training programme and will be facilitated by a member of HMR early attachment service and/or a PIMH champion from HMR health visiting.

By the end of this session practitioners will:

  1. Appreciate the effects and impact of perinatal mental illness in the antenatal period on the mother, developing foetus, infant and wider family
  2. Recognise how perinatal mental illness can affect the parent-child and wider family relationships
  3. Appreciate the role of the father or other parent in the context of today’s society and how this can impact on engaging with services
  4. Be aware of the prevalence and impact of paternal mental illness
  5. Understand the importance of promoting and supporting good paternal mental health
  6. Feel more confident to engage with fathers to support their mental wellbeing and develop father-inclusive services

This series of training sits at level 1 (general knowledge and awareness) of the Greater Manchester perinatal infant mental health training matrix.

Please note this session is for professionals who work with families in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale and is aimed at any professional who comes into contact with families during pregnancy or within the first 5 years of the child's life.

Confirmation of your place on training will be sent via email after your answers to the screening questions have been reviewed.

We look forward to you joining us.
