MSc Perinatal Mental Health

MSc Perinatal Mental Health


The MSc in Perinatal Mental Health (PMH) adopts a wellbeing focus through exploring the promotion, identification, management and care of women who experience PMH issues and their families. The interdisciplinary nature of the programme is designed to facilitate professionals in developing their knowledge and skills of PMH promotion and to meet the needs of PMH across the continuum from normal psychological transitions to complex psychological difficulties e.g. mood, anxiety and psychotic experiences. Prevention, identification and effective PMH care are important considering the potential consequences for women, infants/children, families and society. The MSc programme incorporates an interdisciplinary approach in its delivery and will facilitate inter-professional learning, education and collaboration, and has been developed in response to the National and International focus for education and training for healthcare professionals in PMH.
