HR guide to perinatal mental health support in the workplace

Organisation: PANDAS


A ‘perinatal’ mental health problem is one that you experience any time from becoming pregnant up to a year after you give birth.

Dr Krystal Wilkinson of Manchester Metropolitan University, and PANDAS have developed an HR toolkit for businesses and organisations to use as part of their employee assistance programmes/wellbeing provisions to support parents who might be experiencing a perinatal mental health problem.

The PDF explains the differences between perinatal mental health problems, the impact they might have on new parents, and ways your organisation can support those experiencing them.

It also explores your legal responsibilities as an employer, and provides links and signposts to other useful contacts.
