More support for pregnant women and new mums suffering mental health problems

Baby's HealthcareNHS England have set out plans to provide more support for pregnant women and new mums suffering mental illness as well as to improve care for the many people with mental health problems attending A&E in crisis. Simon Stevens, Chief Executive of NHS England, will tell the Mind conference tomorrow that £40m is to be allocated to 20 areas of the country, including Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, to fund new specialist community mental health services for mums in the immediate run up to and after birth, and help reach 30,000 more women a year by 2021. A further £20m will be allocated next year. The funding for new mums will see new or bigger teams in those areas providing specialist care for all new and expectant mums with severe mental ill health like severe post-natal depression.
