Perinatal mental health training

The perinatal mental health training and resources developed under the National Perinatal Depression Initiative (NPDI), and informed by the 2011 beyondblue Perinatal Clinical Practice Guidelines, are now out of date. While the health professional resources will remain available for download until the new Clinical Practice Guidelines are released by the Centre of Perinatal Excellence (COPE) in late October 2017, the Beyond babyblues free online training program is no longer available.

If you would like to be notified of the release of the revised Perinatal Clinical Practice Guidelines and health professional training currently under development by COPE, please register your details here: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3721986/COPE-Guideline-Registration

The perinatal training matrix that assists health professionals to identify their training needs, a companion document to the 2011 beyondblue Perinatal Clinical Guidelines, will remain available until the updated guidelines are released. Download the training matrix for perinatal mental health skills and knowledge (last updated 2011).
