Who is this suitable for?

We support women who are pregnant or have given birth in the past 12 months who have mental health needs.

Support, which can be short or long-term, consists of:

  • 1:1 support to access community groups
  • Befriending service
  • Help with benefits and signposting for finance issues such as debt
  • Signposting for employment support
  • Short-term and long-term support

All support is planned according to each person’s individual circumstances.
