The start of Perinatal Mental Health Awareness Week

This week we will be celebrating Perinatal Mental Health Awareness Week and be using the time that we have to promote and raise awareness of such a critical and often neglected area of mental health.

We are delighted that to kick off this week we are able to launch a brand new film (watch here) that we have worked on with Elk Medium.

For many new parents, what we feel and what we show are two different things. The internal dialogue often doesn’t match the Instagram display of smiling images.

We have to learn to look beyond perfect parenthood and hear the experiences of women if we are to help.

This film focuses on mums, but we do not do this at the expense of acknowledging the mental health need of partners.

Please help us to make this film a success, and take a second to watch and to share.
