Perinatal peer support groups

More than 1 in 5 women will experience mental health difficulties in pregnancy or during their baby’s first year.  Men may also be more vulnerable to mental distress and illness at this time. 

Our Perinatal Peer Support Groups project has been developed to create a safe and nurturing environment where parents affected by perinatal mental health issues can get help and support.

Peer support is when people use their own experience to help each other.  Research has shown that peer support is very effective in helping parents who are experiencing perinatal mental health difficulties.  

Our groups are open to families living in Aberdeen who are either pregnant or have a child aged under one year. 

How to get support from us

Any who lives in Aberdeen and has at least one child aged under 5, or is expecting a baby, can come to us for help.
