Perinatal mental illness is a relatively common experience in new parents, however many practitioners reported they do not have good knowledge or confidence working with people facing perinatal mental illness. This practice toolkit contains information about perinatal mental illness, and how to use your existing skills to feel more confident in working alongside people affected by perinatal mental illness.

The following resource is designed for any mental health practitioners working in remote, rural or regional NSW who have not completed specialty training in working with people living with a perinatal mental illness but are treatment providers for individuals with a perinatal mental illness, and their family.

This is an introduction to working with individuals experiencing perinatal mental illness and is not exhaustive nor designed as a treatment manual. We encourage all practitioners who are working with individuals with a perinatal mental illness to seek specialised training in evidence-based treatments and engage in supervision.
