The Perinatal Support Service offers support to families where a parent is struggling with his/her emotional health and wellbeing or where s/he has been diagnosed with a low to moderate level perinatal mental illness. We can also support families when their personal circumstances mean they may be vulnerable to developing a perinatal mental illness.
The service will provide parents with a dedicated, trained volunteer who will offer emotional support and support to access other services in the community.
The aims of the service are to:
- Improve mental health and wellbeing of new parents
- Support a positive relationship between parents and their baby
- Reduce social isolation of families
- Increase self confidence.
