In Her Shoes Conference

In Her Shoes Conference on Women's Mental Health 2019

The Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc), together with Servier Pharmaceuticals, hosted its 5th Annual “In her Shoes” Conference on the 14th of September 2019 at the Langham Hotel, Melbourne. Melbourne.

“In her Shoes” is a one-day conference bringing together clinicians and all those who care about women's mental health. The Women’s Mental Health Team from MAPrc - opinion leaders and clinicians working in the field - presented the latest research and understanding about the key issues impacting on women's mental health, in an informative, nurturing and inspiring forum.

What is perimenopausal depression? What is the safety of psychotropics in pregnancy? How do I diagnose and manage mental illness in pregnancy and post-partum? What is PMS vs PMDD? Does the pill cause depression? What is the impact of early life trauma? – these are just some of the many questions that were answered at our annual Women's Mental Health conference.

The 2019 conference was attended by over 120 general practitioners, psychiatrists, and other health professionals from all over Australia.
