About this Event

Suitable for all professionals who work with families with maternal mental illness or trauma

The heart can think of no devotion

Greater than being shore to the ocean -

Holding the curve of one position,

Counting an endless repetition

-Robert Frost

Frost’s words capture the potential for both passions and pain at the heart of parenting. This is the theme of the Helen Mayo House Perinatal and Infant Mental Health 2019 Conference, which promises to be two days of education and inspiration suitable for all professionals working with perinatal women, infants and their families.

Our Keynote Speaker for the morning plenary is Maria Muzik, MD. Maria is an Associate Professor at the University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry and Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Co-Director of theWomen and Infants Mental Health Program and Medical Director of thePerinatal Psychiatry Clinic. We are delighted also to feature Maria on day 2 of the conference, when she will lead an in-depth 6 hour workshop on the topic of Motherhood in the Face of Trauma: Vulnerability, Resilience and Therapeutic Interventions.

Other plenary presenters include Professor Robyn Young from the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work at Flinders University, Associate Professor Charlene Thornton from the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Flinders University and Nicola Redhouse, author of “Unlike the Heart, a Memoir of Brain and Mind”. There will also be a vibrant program of concurrent workshops to choose from in the morning and afternoon sessions on day 1.

Conference registrants can elect to attend one or both days, with a discount available for attending both days. Students, CAMHS staff and groups of 6 or more also receive a discount.
