Discrimination and severe mental illness in the perinatal period


Jointly funded by Yorkshire & Humber ARC and NIHR School for Public Health Research, this projectis investigating inequalities in care for women at high risk of developing severe perinatal mental illness.

Routine health data is being used to assess disparities in access to services for women from minority ethnic groups and women living in poverty. Interviews with women from these backgrounds are also being undertaken to understand their experiences of being labelled ‘high risk’.
