Members of the Maternal Mental Health Alliance have recently agreed for the MMHA to register as an independent charity, and we are pleased to announce that we are now recruiting our first board of trustees.
We hope to receive applications from a wide range of people interested in serving as trustees, including individuals directly involved in perinatal mental health work or those with other skills that we are looking for.
This is a hugely exciting time to join us as a trustee. The MMHA is widely acknowledged to have had an impact on recent maternal mental health policy, including the investment in England in specialist services for women with severe perinatal mental health problems. But there is still much to do – we must make sure that recent investment in specialist services is not wasted, absorbed elsewhere or misspent and is matched throughout the UK; we must continue to tackle stigma; to support those working to improve services on the ground and to improve care for all women including those with mild – moderate perinatal mental health problems.
