A new support group in Northamptonshire for mums and their families with pre and postnatal mental health illnesses is being launched at the International Women’s Day event at Northampton Guildhall on Saturday.

The event runs from 11am to 3pm.

The group has been running for several months in an online format but has recently been granted affiliation with PANDAS, the leading UK charity in supporting families suffering from pre (antenatal) and postnatal illnesses. The group has regular meet ups and a 24-hour online support forum.

A spokeswoman said: “PANDAS vision is to support every individual, family and carer suffering with perinatal mental health illnesses. We campaign to raise awareness and remove the stigma. To find out more please visit our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Northamptonshirepandas.”
