Perinatal mental health practice is based on a population health approach to enable mental health promotion activities and the early recognition of protective and risk factors that impact on women and their family's mental health during pregnancy and the first year after birth. Skills in perinatal mental health assessment are developed and refined. Students explore best practice approaches for the management of perinatal mental health and illness. Importantly students gain the skills to critically discuss community perceptions about perinatal mental health. Perinatal mental health is explored using understandings of cultural constructs.
