Summary

Healthy Minds – Happy Families aims to improve mums-to-be and new mums’ mental health so they can better care and support their children as active members of their community. It recruits, trains and develops local volunteers who provide 1-2-1 flexible emotional and practical support at home for 6-9 months with the long term ambition of becoming a community-led peer supportservice run by local people. With volunteer support mothers will be able to develop and increase their social networks, reducing isolation and feelings of loneliness.
