About the project

PND and Me is online peer support for those with Perinatal Mental Illness run via @PNDandMe on Twitter, I host a weekly chat with the hashtag #PNDHour every Wednesday at 8pm for all those across the UK

There are 17 Mother & Baby Units across with UK with approximately 125 beds altogether, these units offer crucial inpatient support for mothers experiencing a mental illness, mothers are able to access this support with their baby in the unit with them which helps the bonding process between mother & child.

I'd like to create packs that include all the information about #PNDHour for those in Mother & Baby Units across the UK, with any left over packs they will be sent out to any Postnatal Depression Support individuals/groups/charities that would like them.

Packs will include for indiviuals -

  • A 20 page booklet with positives stories and words of hope
  • A small teddy bear called 'Hope'

Also packs for the Units will include spare copies of the booklets plus promotionals posters and cards about #PNDHour

Your support will help raise awareness of this important peer support network for mothers in the UK. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
