Press call to raise awareness of perinatal mental health issues

Released on: 12 August 2015

We're looking for mums who have experienced perinatal mental health issues, including postnatal depression, to get in touch if they would like to help with our media and campaigning work.

We know that mental health can be a difficult subject to talk about but the real life experiences of parents are invaluable in raising awareness and understanding of the issue.

Mums would need to be happy to speak to the press. Most journalists will require a full name and possibly a photo if the interview is for a newspaper/magazine article. There may also be radio and TV opportunities. All media requests would come via our press office who would make sure that mums are briefed and comfortable with the interview format.

To find out more please email press@nct.org.uk with your telephone number or call 020 87522417.

Thank you for your help in raising awareness of mental health issues and our campaign to improve support and services for new parents.
