Description:
Perinatal mental health disorders are those which complicate pregnancy (antenatal) and the first postnatal year. They include both new onset and a relapse or reoccurrence of preexisting disorders. Their unique aspect is their potential to affect the relationship between mother, child and family unit with consequent later development of significant emotional and behavioural difficulties in the child. In recognition of this, together with its awareness of the paucity of current services, the Mental Health Division included in its 2016 Service Plan a commitment to develop a Model of Care for the specialist component of a comprehensive perinatal mental health service response. This is in line with its responsibility for providing specialist mental health services.
