£1.5m perinatal mental health care help for women in Wales

£1.5m perinatal mental health care help for women in Wales

The Welsh Government has pledged a total of £7.5 million (£1.5m per year over 5 years) to improve mental health outcomes for women with perinatal illnesses, their babies and other children. Members of the campaign team met with Health and Social Services Minister Mark Drakeford and are keen to actively support this encouraging initiative. The main proportion of funding will support the development of multidisciplinary networked services and robust pathways at all levels across Wales with some Health Boards setting up specific perinatal special interest groups for service development.
