dc.description.abstractAbstract The perinatal period is the most vulnerable period in women’s lives for relapse or the onset of mental illness. Increasing evidence demonstrates that men too experience significant vulnerabilities that may exacerbate existing mental illness or precipitate the onset of an illness in their transition to fatherhood. The Victorian FaPMI Program (Families where a Parent has a Mental Illness) in Australia, supports the capacity of mental health services and other health and community services to provide family-focused care, that proactively supports parents with pre-existing and current mental illness, their infants and children, and other family members, alongside mental health recovery. This paper reviews four key policy and review documents to consider the current context of Victorian (Australia) perinatal mental health policy, practice, and service planning. It explores how these policy documents provide for the particular challenges of those with pre-existing mental illness as they become parents and for their infants and families.en_US
