Mapping tool for local parent and infant mental health
The Mums and Babies in Mind mapping tool is being used by a number of areas around the country now as areas understand what strengths and gaps they have in their parent and infant mental health provision.
Originally developed to support the four MABIM sites in Blackpool, Gloucester, Haringey and Southend, the tool has generated interest further afield to support the development and improvement of services available across the pathway of care for women and families affected by perinatal mental illness.
Each of the tabs helps to develop the local picture of care available and for local perinatal and infant mental health groups to identify priorities for improving local provision. Further information about using the tool can be sought from the MABIM team by emailing Beckie Lang, interim strategic lead on the project.
