New mums encouraged to complete survey on perinatal mental health services

Research aiming to understand how new mothers and pregnant people experience Mental Health Services during their pregnancy and the first year after giving birth (Perinatal Mental Health Services) is being undertaken by University College London. Participants are being asked to complete an anonymous & confidential online survey which also offers the opportunity of signing up to a draw with cash prizes.

Little research has focused so far on how people experience Perinatal Mental Health Services and the support they offer. This research aims to inform the development of future NHS mental health services to better support mothers and families in need.

The research team is interested in hearing people’s experiences and thoughts about NHS mental health services during pregnancy and/or the first year after giving birth. You do not need to have attended any mental health appointment to take part in this study, but you do need to have been referred to a mental health service during your pregnancy and/or first year after giving birth. People who are currently pregnant or who have given birth in the last 3 years can take part.
