Raising Awareness


We are always keen to raise awareness for perinatal mental illness, especially in our local area, Essex.

We have been featured in local and national newspapers, and taken part in a feature on BBC Essex Radio about perinatal mental health.

 

We regularly join in social media campaigns and awareness events, most recently Time For Changes Time to Talk day and Sport Relief Maternal Mental Heath Awareness Day. 


​We reach people via our social media pages, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and also our Youtube channel.


Sarah is a Time For Change Mental Health Champion and has been into local secondary schools to talk about her experiences with the students studying child development.

We were UK ambassadors for World Maternal Mental Health Awareness week in May.

Laura contributed to the RCGP's Perinatal Mental Health Toolkit by using her lived experience and we both attended the launch.


We are both currently ambassadors for Healthwatch Essex providing feedback from service users about mental health services in Essex and helping to shape future services.


We support many of the amazing peer support groups throughout the UK and have met up with them to discuss how to provide the best care for mums.  

 

You can follow our social media accounts and if you're interested in helping out or volunteering with us then please get into contact, we would love to hear from you.


If you would like us to take part in your event or share our experiences then please send us a message.
