What Were We Thinking! (WWWT) is an evidence-based, gender-informed psychoeducation program for parents of first babies. It promotes parents' confidence and wellbeing, and reduces common postpartum mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. This presentation offers a multidisciplinary approach to examine new ways of thinking about mental health promotion and prevention in new parents by offering the following presentations:

  1. Professor Jane Fisher: current responses and new evidence
  2. Fiona Darling: introduction to WWWT e-mental health resources
  3. Sue Doogan: practical applications and lessons from the field

After this event participants will be able to:

  • Understand the theoretical principles and evidence behind WWWT
  • Recognise modifiable risks for perinatal depressive, anxiety and adjustment disorders
  • Implement evidence-informed strategies using e-mental health resources, to build skills and promote health adjustment among new parents.
