This acknowledges the extensive evidence that investing in mental health at this early stage can have a dramatic impact on long-term outcomes for mothers, fathers, children, families and society.

Depression Alliance aims to bring people together to end the loneliness and isolation can that can accompany depression and is the leading UK charity for people affected by depression.  They also offer a ‘friends in need’ online community.

Support Groups

We have been working closely with Pentreath an award winning mental health charitable organisation to recruit, train and support volunteers who have been running a fabulously successful support group at the Children’s Centre in Falmouth. 

 

This group has now come to an end.  From the Angela Harrison Charitable Trust we want to say a big thank you to the volunteers who committed valuable time and energy in setting up and maintaining these support groups to help and inspire the mums involved.
