We are excited to bring you the first of our PADA Seminar Series for 2021, being held in Ōtepoti Dunedin on 24 February 2021, at Salvation Army Haven Hall, 160 Crawford Street, Dunedin.

We have an exciting list of presenters lined up to bring tools, understanding and knowledge into your work with helping families in the perinatal period.

These seminars provide professional development for those supporting families affected by mental illness related to pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood. When participants leave each seminar, they will better understand how these topics impact families, and strengthen their knowledge and skills to help improve perinatal outcomes.

These seminars are of particular value to: Midwives, Social Workers, Psychologists, Nurses, GPs, Family Community Support Workers, Psychotherapists, Childbirth Educators, HR Professionals, Counsellors, Mental Health Clinicians, Early Childhood Educators, to list a few.
