MMHS is delighted by the news that NI has secured £4.7m per year to develop specialist perinatal mental health services across the country.

Congratulations to all the campaigners, experts by experience and professionals who have made this happen. The significance of this investment will have on the experiences of women and babies cannot be overstated.

MMHS are happy to support efforts in Northern Ireland to share learning and learn from our experiences.

We know only too well, that securing funding is only the start of the journey but we’re delighted to be one step closer to securing equal access to specialist perinatal mental health support for women and families across the whole of the UK.

We look forward to working with partners, as part of the UK-wide Everyone’s Business campaign, to make this change a reality for women and families in North Ireland.
