Evidence suggests that regular attendance at a peer support group can really help your recovery from PND. Mums and dads find it beneficial to talk to others going through a similar experience and it alleviates the sense of loneliness and isolation that can come with postnatal depression.
There are a number of PND support groups and charities across the UK working independently to help families affected by the illness.
The SMILE Group operates in Cheshire East, however, we have developed close links with both regional and national charities across the country, to ensure a joined-up approach and to share best practice. We are all collectively working to ensure more consistent support across the UK for those experiencing PND.
