For Service Providers
Many service providers feel unprepared to provide assistance to families who may present with PMD. Feedback received from service providers during discussion groups held at a Peel PMD Community Forum in November 2007 confirmed the need for ongoing education.
In your words:
“We don’t know where to refer mothers for help”
“We need to know what questions to ask and what non verbal cues to look for”
“We need a central place to get information about PMD”
It is important that service providers can access accurate and up-to-date information about PMD. Check out our PMD Info link or take our PMD tutorial for information and facts about PMD. Both will help you to gain a better understanding of PMD so you can help parents in the community.
