Perinatal Mental Health Week 2021

This year between the 7th – 13th November, we celebrated Perinatal Mental Health week.

In 2021, Belmont Private Hospital's Brisbane Centre for Post Natal Disorders (BCPND) celebrated its 30th year in operation. Established in 1991, the specialised 10-bed unit is Queensland’s only dedicated private mother-and-baby mental health unit offering treatment and support to women with mental health concerns in the perinatal period, including antenatally.

In support of PANDA Week 2021 and this special milestone anniversary, Belmont Private Hospital was proud to host and attend a range of internal and community based events to raise awareness of perinatal mental health and celebrate key achievements of the specialty unit with staff, industry professionals consumers and the wider community.

PANDA Week events 2021:
- Partner and family morning tea in the BCPND unit
- Mums and Bubs yoga
- Peach Tree 10 year anniversary event
- Social Media Collaboration with Peach Tree
- Art Collaboration with patients
- Perinatal Symposium on the Gold Coast

During the week's events we were excited to meet with leaders within the perinatal field to discuss the latest approaches, thoughts, theories, and research into perinatal mental health.

Supporting perinatal mental health education

We look forward to providing more opportunities for health professionals looking to broaden their skills and deepen their understanding of perinatal work in 2022. As part of our ongoing commitment to General Practitioner and Health Professional education, Belmont Private Hospital holds regular educational events throughout the year.

Belmont Private Hospital is committed to raising community awareness about perinatal mental health, and educating health professionals about treatment options and referral pathways.
