Heidi's fundraiser for APP
Fundraising for APP
Verified by JustGiving
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.
I work for a Specialised Perinatal team and have chosen to run 1400 miles between 15th April and 31st December to represent the number of women experiencing Post Partum Psychosis each year in the UK. 1 mile for each new mum, baby and family whose affected.
So, here I go! A new fitness challenge and whilst doing so hopefully raising some awareness for PPP and the amazing work the Action on PP charity does in supporting mums.
