Mental Ill Health and Post-Natal Depression

Your family may be trying to cope with the impact of mental ill health or post-natal depression.  You may be struggling to care for your children while you are trying to get better. Perhaps you find aspects of parenting unmanageable, such as:

  • Establishing routines around bedtimes
  • Healthy eating
  • Supervision of homework
  • Engaging in play
  • Providing stimulating opportunities for your children

That’s where the support of a volunteer who understands what you are going through can really help. A volunteer will give you free practical and emotional support, which is non-judgemental, compassionate and confidential.

You choose together what you think will be the best support for you and your family, around your mental health. For example, a volunteer could help you to:

  • Plan routines
  • Have quality one-to-one time with your child
  • Put into practice any strategies you have been offered to support your improved mental health
  • Get out of the house – go to the park, to the library, the local family centre or a local group.
