Module 2: Understanding Mental Health Conditions

Given the range of adjustments and challenges that can occur at this stage of life, it is not surprising that our risk of developing a mental health problem significantly increases when having a baby.

In this module we will look closely into the most common mental health conditions - anxiety and depression.

We will consider what makes one person over another, more at risk of developing these conditions in pregnancy and the first year of parenthood. Importantly we will also review how we can identify where and how to access information as well as support and treatment in our community through the e-COPE Directory.
