Resources Postpartum Mood Disorders Supporting Parents

The Best Start Resource Centre developed this ready-to-use workshop to meet the needs of service providers who are working with parents experiencing mental health challenges. There is no cost to the workshop. It can be downloaded from the Best Start Resource Centre website.  

This workshop consists of four modules suitable for a full-day workshop or four 1 – 1.5 hour learning events. They provides information, links to other resources, highlights resources service providers can use on a day-to-day basis, and provides support through discussion of cases and reflective questions. Service providers will benefit most when the modules are worked through in a group format supported by a facilitator. If that is not an available option, service providers can work through each module individually in a reflective manner.
