Acacia Family Support

Acacia provides, free of charge, a wide range of individual, group-based and peer support services to help women recover from the symptoms associated with pre and postnatal depression and anxiety. Their services are delivered across Birmingham by a team of 40 trained volunteers and a small staff team and they include telephone befriending, individual listening/befriending, CBT based group workshops, telephone support and practical in-home support. Acacia's staff and volunteers have themselves experienced maternal mental health or other mental health problems. This helps them to better understand how women are feeling and to show them that this is a temporary illness and that they can get through it.
