Around 1 in 5 women develop a mental health problem during pregnancy or in the early years after having a baby. Too often, they go unrecognised, undiagnosed, and untreated.
If untreated, perinatal mental health problems can have a devastating impact on the women affected and their families.
The MMHA exists to change this.
The MMHA’s Everyone’s Business campaign calls for all women throughout the UK who experience a perinatal mental health problem to receive the care and support they and their families need, wherever and whenever they need it.
Specialist services are foundational for perinatal mental health care. Our maps show where these services are and aren't available in the UK.
Women and families across the UK need equal access to high-quality, compassionate care and support, including and beyond specialist services.
