Embracing Maternal Mental Health
You are not alone.
Up to 20% of women will experience a mental health problem in pregnancy or in the first year after giving birth*
Everyone at Happy Mums has their own experiences of maternal mental health problems, so you can be sure there will be no judgement and a warm welcome.
Peer Support Groups
Our support groups are created specifically to be a safe space for mums to share how they are really feeling and hear words of support from those who have been in similar situations. With group helpers and toys on hand to keep the little ones entertained.
"I don't know how I would manage without them. I stopped attending group when I went back to work, but soon realised I had to carve out some time to get back to a group. I could feel myself deteriorating without it."
Anonymous mum, 34, Carlisle
We couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers, many of whom started as group members. We have 5 key volunteering roles: Facilitator, Group Helper, Welcomer, Inclusion Champion and Ambassador. If you’re interested in Volunteering with us email email@example.com.
