Hannah's and Ryan’s fundraiser for APP
Fundraising for APP
Verified by JustGiving
Back in October 2021 I was admitted into a mother and baby unit in Leeds for treatment of postnatal depression and postpartum psychosis. Our families travelled 120 miles to come and visit me on a weekly basis. Myself and Ryan have chosen to take part in the ‘Miles for mums and babies’ challenge where we will be walking and running 156 miles throughout May. 120 miles for the distance our family travelled and 36 miles for each day I was in the unit.
Thank you so much for donating to this amazing charity! Wish us luck!
Action on Postpartum Psychosis (APP) is a UK charity. We’re here to make sure mums, parents and families are supported through postpartum psychosis – a severe, but treatable, form of mental illness that occurs after having a baby and affects 1400 new mums in the UK each year.
We offer information and peer support, facilitate ground breaking research, raise awareness and campaign for improved services.
Our life changing peer support network helps women and families affected by postpartum psychosis feel understood, supported and less isolated.
