COPE: Centre of Perinatal Excellence was commissioned by the Commonwealth Government of Australia to review and update the National Perinatal Mental Health Guideline in 2023.
An expert working group (EWG) formed to develop the national guideline included representatives of the professional bodies in primary, maternity, postnatal and mental healthcare. The EWG was convened to guide and inform the development of the new Perinatal Guideline – Effective Mental Health Care in the Perinatal Period: Australian Clinical Practice Guideline.
Through the work of the EWG, together with specialist expert subcommittees, the National Guideline was drafted and brought to public consultation. Obtained consultation feedback was reviewed for the finalisation of the national guideline and submission to the NHMRC.
