Awareness Support Research and Education of Postnatal Depression

1 in 7 women suffer from Postnatal Depression as the figures get higher. This illness not only effects the woman, but also the family. It can cause families to break up, which has a big impact on the children. Men are also known to have depression after the partner gets better. Stigma of mental health is hard, but when having a child it makes it even harder to come forward. Also families are afraid due to the social services getting involved, which should also be highlighted.
