Post Partum Psychosis is a truly horrific and indiscriminate illness that can strike any new mum regardless of never having any mental health issues previously.
It struck me like a bolt out of the blue and will forever be the worst experience of mine and my families lives. After a long recovery I made it out of the other side...slightly battered and bruised but intact thanks to my fantastic, compassionate and loving family and friends.
The help APP offered was amazing, they were there with me every step of the way and I poured over their literature and was a frequent visitor the online forum. I was appointed a peer supporter and she was a real strength. We need to continue to educate and promote awareness of this truly terrible and life changing illness. Funds raised will go towards offering training to midwives and health visitors to make them aware of the risks and symptoms and it will also enable the crucial work of the peer supporters.
