Author(s): Tanya Connell
Psychosocial screening has been implemented in the public sector in NSW for a decade, but what about the private sector? Is it applicable or even possible?. Women who experience the stressors that are related to an increased risk or an indication of perinatal mental health disorders should be assessed and offered referral to appropriate services. This paper is a discussion paper to explore the essential referral pathways for perinatal women with identified risk factors for perinatal mental illness.
