Why does seeking help matter?

Addressing perinatal mental health concerns is crucial for the well-being of the parent and the development of the child.

Addressing mild to moderate perinatal mental health concerns and/or parent infant relationships issues is crucial not only for the wellbeing of the parent but also for the healthy development of the child. Early intervention can prevent these issues from escalating and support a positive parent-child relationship.


For those seeking help

  • Self-referral: If you recognise any of these symptoms in yourself, reaching out for help is a strong and positive step. Early support can make a significant difference.
  • Referring a loved one: If you notice a loved one experiencing these symptoms, gently encouraging them to seek support can be invaluable. Offering to assist with finding help or attending appointments with them can be a great support.
  • Healthcare professionals: When encountering service users showing these signs, a referral to appropriate perinatal mental health services is crucial. Be mindful of the holistic needs of the patient, including their physical and emotional wellbeing.
