Family Action Perinatal Support Project

Report on the Family Action Perinatal Support Project which was established at four sites across the UK in 2010 and evolved from the early work of Newpin.

The aim of this service was to offer women experiencing perinatal anxiety and depression support from volunteer befrienders who had experienced such perinatal mental health problems. A total of 86 volunteer befrienders were recruited and trained, and the service was provided to around 189 women during the study period.
