Story

I work as a Clinical Psychologist in the Suffolk Perinatal Mental Health Team. I’m joining my fantastic colleagues in a challenge to collectively walk/ run 1400 miles in the month of May (not easy as a small team)! We have chosen this number as it’s the number of women that experience postpartum psychosis in the UK every year. We are raising money to support the charity Action on Postpartum Psychosis (APP).

APP 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.

They offer information and peer support, facilitate ground breaking research, raise awareness and campaign for improved services.
