The Thunder Bay Infant Response Plan Community Committee invites you to join us for a maternal mental health professional education opportunity on Thursday, May 23rd. The objective of the full-day workshop is to assist service providers who work with women and families to learn about perinatal mental health with an understanding of how to best intervene to meet client needs.
Our keynote speaker, Ms. Jaime Charlebois, is the Regional Perinatal Mood Disorder Coordinator for North Simcoe Muskoka, working out of Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital. She is also a Regional Volunteer Coordinator for Postpartum Support International. She holds a Master of Science in Nursing and a Perinatal Nursing Certification from the Canadian Nurses Association. Jaime’s work experience includes 18 years of clinical nursing, 7 years of teaching and simulation, and 5 years in clinical leadership positions. She currently collaborates and trains at the local, provincial, and national level.
In addition, the Thunder Bay Perinatal Research Team will speak about a collaborative local project to develop and evaluate a postpartum treatment group, as well as their recent work to understand the impacts of peripartum mood changes on intimate partner relationships. These projects are shared initiatives between Lakehead University, St. Joseph’s Care Group, and Thunder Bay District Health Unit. Research team members include: Dr. Amanda Maranzan, Dr. Missy Teatero, Ms. Rosemary Scofich, & Dr. Heather Boynton.
A detailed agenda will follow closer to the event.
