This #marceresearch study aims to examine the impact of a history of poor mental health on health care costs during the perinatal period. Findings indicate that an investment in prevention and early treatment of poor mental health prior to child bearing may result in a cost saving in the perinatal period and a reduction of the incidence of women experiencing poor perinatal mental health.

#marcereseach Preparing the maternity environment for integrating mental health care in South Africa. In this insightful article, the PMHP describes a critical pedagogical intervention for care-providers working within maternity settings. The method is called 'Secret History' and draws heavily on Brazilian social activist’s Augusto Boal’s ‘Theatre of the Oppressed’, particularly his Forum Theatre. Many low-and-middle-income countries, including South Africa, are working on the integration of mental health services into routine Primary Health Care to reduce the gaps in treatment coverage. This training could help prepare the healthcare workforce for this task. #globalpmh #perinatal #mentalhealth #PMHtraining #PMHresearch https://doi.org/10.1177/1363461519844640

#marceresearch Pregnant women living in developing countries have an increased risk of experiencing symptoms of mental disorder. Data gathered and analysed from two maternal mental health clinics in Cape Town, #SouthAfrica , showed five independent key risk factors for unplanned pregnancies in women with mental illness. Namely: lower levels of education, unmarried status, belonging to the 'colored' ethnic population, substance use and having a history of suicide attempts. Researchers conclude: "screening of women based on these risk predictors may pave the way for early interventions and reduce the incidence of unplanned pregnancy". #globalpmh #maternal #mentalhealth #maternalMHmatters #PMAD https://lght.ly/0jeo3l8

This #marceresearch study shows that several risk factors, such as emotional abuse in childhood or anxiety during pregnancy can be predictors of mother-infant bonding disturbances during the postpartum period. The researchers believe that their findings provide a sound basis for the future detection and treatment of #MIB disturbances to promote healthy interactive maternal behaviour. #globalpmh #PND #maternal #mentalhealth #predisposing #factors #stressful #lifeevents #anxiety https://lght.ly/h5jlldf

#marcereserach : 'Changes in mood after screening for antenatal anxiety and depression' This insightful article highlights the use of screening programmes with referral systems in place, as a valuable strategy for mitigating consequences of perinatal depression on mothers and their families.
