Abstract

"The project stemmed from the need of a local children’s centre team and multidisciplinary practitioners to further address maternity and child outcomes as part of key national and local targets, together with addressing approaches a children’s centre could adopt. We decided to set up a pilot group to look at how we could better address the needs of mothers experiencing low level postnatal depression (PND), as well as supporting the ongoing development of integrated working within a children’s centre. A group of managers, practitioners, a GP practice, a link health visitor (HV) and commissioner, who are already working together with children’s centres, agreed to dedicate time to meet regularly to support the project. Anecdotal evidence from practitioners was that mothers experiencing low level PND had increased. It was agreed by the group to focus on this as a priority." - Page 4.
