Please see the latest Perinatal and Infant Mental Health Programme Board 2020-2021 delivery plan which was released on 3 July 2020.
The latest community standards for perinatal mental health services have also been released and the Perinatal Mental Health Network Scotland is also due to shortly release guidance for service development, which will be particularly useful, especially for areas that are currently underserved. They are helpful guides and standards for supporting your efforts to develop perinatal services in Scotland.
Please get in touch with us if there are issues you would like us to raise as a professional group. How are your services and ways of working currently being affected? Are there any resources you would like to share with Faculty members?
Some Faculty members have expressed an interest in offering to be mentors for colleagues - would you like to have a mentor or be a mentor? Please email (details as below) to discuss.
