There have been some great services sharing the work they do not only during #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek but all year round. The Leeds Teaching Hospital E-Midwife brings together the wonderful work of Mindwell which is part of the Clincial Commissioning Group in this lovely info graphic which also recognises the importance of grassroots and third sector services for helping women and families to find support virtually.

Leeds Teaching Hospital E-Midwife say they're not forgetting Dads at this time too. By helping to promote the launch of this useful DadPad app developed with the NHS. They know that with changes to the maternity services at this time means partners are missing out on the opportunities for asking questions that may arise when attending antenatal groups and appointments. This app helps to answer queries and offer advice on practical guidance too.

The term 'Perinatal' refers to the period from pregnancy to one year after you give birth. The Perinatal Mental Health Partnership is a social media platform offering advice and support from a wealth of mental health professionals around the country. This facebook page is concentrating on Maternal Mental Health during Covid and at other times too.
