Intergenerational Mental Health Conference – how a whole-family approach can improve children’s health and wellbeing

Join professionals, academics and families at the 1st Annual UK Maternal Mental Health Alliance Conference this September.

Join practitioners, service users and academics to explore how a whole-family approach can break the intergenerational cycle of mental health problems at the first annual Maternal Mental Health Alliance conference: Intergenerational Mental Health: working with mums and babies in perinatal mental health practice on 13 September 2017 at Imperial College, London.

  • working holistically with families experiencing domestic abuse
  • assessing psychosocial risk and resilience in complex cases
