Prevention of Perinatal Mental Health Disorders Special Interest Group

Welcome to our SIG!

We began our SIG in July 2021 and have had a wonderful and welcoming response! In October 2021, we had six meetings with a wide international audience on a variety of topics, including effective programs for prevention of perinatal mental disorders (universal and high risk populations); family-based preventive interventions of perinatal mental disorders; implementation/integration of prevention programs in primary health care services; prevention of perinatal mental disorders in developing countries; prevention programs using new technologies; and policy advocacy/implications for prevention of perinatal mental disorders.

We plan to continue our discussion to identify topics of mutual interests and determine best ways to collaborate moving forward.

If you are interested in joining our Prevention of Perinatal Mental Health Disorders distribution list, please contact the Executive Office.
