Hertfordshire has made great strides in perinatal and infant mental health in the last 12 months.
At our conference in Hatfield last February, local and national keynote speakers highlighted the importance of understanding perinatal and infant mental health.
Additionally, East and North Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Herts Valleys CCG and Hertfordshire County Council outlined their commitment to improving support for Hertfordshire families who are experiencing poor perinatal and infant mental health.
Since then, they have successfully bid for national NHS funds to develop a specialist community perinatal mental health team and the CCGs funded 120 training places on a 16-session infant mental health online training programme.
We are returning to the Fielder Centre for an afternoon tea celebration event on Monday 24 April to present the progress that has been made and to launch the new community perinatal mental health team, which is being delivered by local mental health services provider, Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT).
