Postnatal Care Policy for the Western Cape and other exciting news..

New Postnatal Care Policy for the Western Cape!

Postnatal Care Policy

The PMHP contributed substantially to this policy which now includes a requirement for screening, referral and adequate follow up of mothers with depression, anxiety, psychosis and substance use problems. The mental health screening tool on the clinic checklist includes the brief tool validated by PMHP at our Hanover Park research project.

The accompanying policy guideline document for health workers includes large sections written by PMHP, pertaining to maternal mental health: risks, signs, symptoms, detection and management.

Find all the documents relating to the new policy here
