Research project: Engagement and experiences of Perinatal Mental Health Service
This study aims to explore and understand how mothers* experience Perinatal Mental Health Services. The “perinatal” period spans from the moment a person becomes pregnant to 1 year after giving birth. It is well documented that this can be a challenging time for many mothers*, with research noting between 20-30% of mothers experience poor mental health. However little attention in research has focused on how mothers experience NHS Perinatal Mental Health Services and the support they offer.
The results of the study will help improve our understanding of the experience of Perinatal Mental Health Services and it is hoped that this work will inform service development to improve Perinatal Mental Health Services, to better support mothers.
