Suffolk Community Perinatal Mental Health Service
In April 2018, the Suffolk Community Perinatal Mental Health Service launched in East and West Suffolk. With additional funding, it is now able to offer support women and their families with moderate to severe mental health difficulties during the perinatal period (from pregnancy up to one year post birth), and also offers pre-conception counselling.
Our MVP sits on the Perinatal Infant Mental Health Steering Group in Suffolk to help shape general support which is out there for PMH, and they would love your input - please fill out our survey above. Or, if you would like to be added to a mailing list for service developments, please let us know!
