Perinatal and Infant Mental Health Sub Network

The Mental Health Network includes a unique Sub Network structure.

The Perinatal and Infant Mental Health Sub Network was established on
15 February 2016, to address the difficulty in coordinating such a large network and to support the Mental Health Network to engage with and improve outcomes for specific cohorts of mental health service users.

The establishment of the Perinatal and Infant Mental Health Sub Network followed a thorough process that sought to be inclusive, representative and reflect the concerns and views of the sector.

The Perinatal and Infant Mental Health Sub Network has a broad membership that is supported by a Steering Group and is sponsored by the Women’s Health, Genetics and Mental Health, North Metropolitan Health Service, who provide administrative support.

The Steering Group is co-chaired by Ms Leanda Verrier and
Ms Donna Kristianopolous.
