Intergenerational Mental Health: keeping parents and babies in mind in perinatal mental health work

Wednesday 13th September 2017

This conference brings together frontline practitioners, service users and academics to explore mental health from one generation to the next, and how whole-family approaches can benefit the wellbeing of all family members. Tickets available here.

We will be exploring the need to intervene early, tackle stigma, and to break the intergenerational cycle of mental health problems.

  • Louise Howard, Professor of Women’s Mental Health, King’s College London & Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist

  • Mark Hanson, Professor and Director of the Institute of Developmental Sciences, University of Southampton
  • Carmine Pariante, Professor of Biological Psychiatry, King’s College London & Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist
