Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Perinatal mental healthcare is an emerging area of practice for OTs in the UK, however research to guide practice remains scarce. A qualitative grounded theory methodology elicited data from 12 OTs using semistructured interviews. The MOHO was found to enable participants to understand the complex needs of mothers with mental illness, measure outcomes, and articulate their unique and distinct role to multiple audiences.
