Mental Health in Pregnancy: raising awareness of perinatal mental health for men and women

In 2004 I started a unique website dedicated to the topic of depression in pregnancy; at the time there was almost nothing known of it. 

This ad by PANDA (a great resource) says up to 1 in 10 pregnant women are affected, but the research now suggests its closer to 1 in 3, and it doesn’t just affect women but their partners and family.

My good friend Elaine Hanzak also talks openly about her experience of Post-Natal Depression which inspired her books Eyes without Sparkle and Another Twinkle in the Eye – you can find out more about the amazing work she is doing at http://www.hanzak.com There are also some great resources on the Mind website

13-19 November is Perinatal Depression and Anxiety awareness week.  Raising awareness of Maternal – and Paternal – Mental Health literally saves lives. It’s time to talk about it.
