10th April 2024, 4:00pm - 5:00pm , Online

During this webinar, organised by the FPH Health of Women and Girls SIG and the FPH Mental Health SIG, speakers will explore the key cultural factors related to perinatal mental health and wellbeing and the need for culturally informed services in the UK, India and Myanmar:

Dr. Gracia Fellmeth a public health consultant and clinical research fellow from the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit, University of Oxford will describe her research on awareness, acceptability and identification of perinatal mental health conditions in India and Myanmar. 

Dr. Emma Pearce, consultant in public health and her team from the Yorkshire & Humber Perinatal Mental Health Provider Collaborative, will describe their work developing Maternal and Perinatal Mental Health services from trauma-informed and health inequalities principles.

The group will explore opportunities for shared learning across high and low resourced settings around the need for cultural competency in perinatal mental health and explore practical ways of achieving this. 

Several of FPH’s Special Interest Groups have joined together to organise a series of lunchtime learning webinars during Global Public Health Week (GPHW), which will take place from 8 to 12 April. The theme of this year’s GPHW is “Fostering Peace as a Prerequisite for Equitable Health”.
