Perinatal & Infant mental health

The Perinatal and Infant Mental Health Group brings acute trust clinicians and managers together with commissioners and Public Health England to map current services across the South West.

The group meets bi-monthly to identify potential variations, service gaps and areas of good practice with the aim of developing commissioning recommendations for service provision. The work will be conducted in partnership with the South West Mental Health Strategic Clinical Network.
