What are the key inequalities?
- Women from all backgrounds and ages can be affected by mental illness and services must be alert to the risks of perinatal mental illness in all women
- Fathers also suffer from mental health problems in the perinatal period
- Adult Mental Health Services support women with no or limited perinatal qualifications or skills
- Still a number of women in Central Bedfordshire are delayed in receiving treatment, NICE guidelines states it should be less than 2 weeks for assessment from referral and less than 1 month for treatment after assessed
