Do I need support?

It can feel overwhelming to reach out for help if you are facing challenges to your emotional wellbeing in pregnancy or postnatally.

It can be tricky to understand what support is available to you or whether you even need support in the first place. Rest assured that you are not alone in this experience and that help is available.

Hearts & Minds is a collaboration of two charities run by people with lived experience of perinatal mental health challenges, who understand what it’s like to try and make sense of how you are feeling. We’ve put together some resources to help you navigate the experience as well as where and how to reach out for support.

Additional Services

The purpose of our online map is to help you find local and national services who can offer perinatal mental health support for you and / or your partner.


There are however, many organisations with a particular specialism that might be appropriate for you and your situation. Check out our Additional Services page to discover what else is available.

Crisis Advice

Please note that we are not a crisis service so if you feel like you need urgent help, then get in contact with organisations who can support you right now.
