Peer Support

Find out more about our peer support groups at Lotus Petal Family Support here.

I’ve been fortunate enough during the last five years to meet some amazing people – healthcare professionals and PMH survivors alike – who are working towards improving treatment and support for those suffering from all forms of Perinatal Mental Illness.

The posts below sum up my experience of peer support, my advocacy work and a few ranty posts for good measure too!
