Maternal Mental Health

Maternal Mental Health

These illnesses frequently go unnoticed and untreated, at times with tragic and long-term consequences to mothers, children, and fathers alike.May is Maternal Mental Health Month. In recent years, as a society, we've done a great job in bettering our understanding of mental health, in terms of having empathy, recognising some of the challenges, dangers and also solutions in terms of offering support, having tolerance towards those who are suffering, on any scale, and so on. We hope this episode has been helpful and reassuring, and please do share it as it could make a world of difference to someone struggling with maternal mental health issues.
This episode aims to inspire and motivate our listeners to make positive changes (either professionally or personally), in order to become the person they want to be, through perpetual learning and continuous professional development.
With lockdown restrictions being eased, we explore the impact of online learning during lockdown and also our vision of how this fits in once we return to normality and all restrictions are lifted.
