26 January 2022 1:00pm – 2:00pmGMT (+00:00)
Virtual (Microsoft Teams)

Speaker: Dr Sarah Cohen, Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist, Hertfordshire Community Perinatal Team

The latest MBRRACE (Mothers and Babies: Reducing Risk through Audits and Confidential Enquiries) report was released in November 2021. One of the key focus areas of this report was the care of women with mental health problems and multiple adversity. The report looks at the lessons learned from the deaths of women in the perinatal period who die from suicide or substance misuse. This talk will go through the key findings of the report and the key messages for staff working with women experiencing mental health problems and multiple adversity. It will cover an overview of care and lessons learned as well as the new recommendations from MBRRACE about reducing risk.

This session is open to all system colleagues who are connected into the perinatal pathway, including but not limited to, community perinatal MH teams, MBUs, crisis, liaison and home treatment teams, maternity, health visiting, VCSE, service users and carers, commissioners etc.

Please feel free to circulate this invite widely.
