Maternal care and mental health book
Postnatal Depression and Maternal Mental Health | Pavilion PublishingChanging global health and development trends have resulted in a need for continued professional development CPD within the health and development sectors. In low-resource settings, where the need for training and CPD may be highest, there are significant challenges for disseminating information and skills. There is a need to improve mental health literacy and reduce levels of stigma about maternal mental illness. The Bettercare series of distance learning books provides a peer-based format for CPD. The aim of this study was to determine whether the Bettercare Maternal Mental Health book significantly improves knowledge and decreases stigma around mental health for care providers from the health and social development sectors.

It is pleasing that the welcome given to the first edition of this monograph should so soon have necessitated a second. It remains unchanged apart from minor textual corrections, and the addition of an index. In the meantime the plea for further research made in chapter 6 has not gone unheeded; the International Children's Centre, Paris, is now supporting such research both in England and France. The Centre has also done much to further a wider understanding of the effects of maternal deprivation by the international seminars which it has sponsored. It is to be hoped that other bodies interested in research will follow its example. An unknown error has occurred.
