This May 2023 Staff, Mum's and Families (including our four legged furry friends) from The Margaret Oates Mother and Baby Unit (Nottingham) will be walking, pushing buggies, toddling, running, cycling 318 miles for Action on Post-Partum Psychosis (APP). The 318 miles represents the distance from the most Westerly MBU (in Exeter) to the most easterly (in Norfolk).
We would like to thank you in advance for your donation, we know what a huge difference APP can make.
"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"
