Australian Marcé Society

About the Australian Marcé Society

“Who we are” statement: The Australasian Chapter of the International Marcé Society was founded in 1995. Liaison between consumers/carers and health professionals is becoming a focus for the Society, as is the childbirth-related mental health of the Indigenous Peoples of Australia and New Zealand. Traditionally, the main focus has been on mental illness related to childbearing. However, the interests of Australasian members often encompass broader areas including the maternal-infant relationship, attachment theory, the psycho-biology of pregnancy, antenatal and postnatal education, psycho-social aspects of obstetrics, perinatal bereavement and all aspects of mental health of women and their families during pregnancy and the postnatal period. Close collaboration between clinicians and researchers is an important priority of the Australasian Chapter.
