The Balsam Centre has been supporting the local community in South Somerset with their health and wellbeing for 15 years.
The Like Minds project will give high numbers of local women and men experiencing or at risk of perinatal mental health issues access to counselling, group support and supportive social networks.
This will help speed up their recovery and help them manage their mental health conditions.
Through the project, people will experience increased self esteem and belief in their own parenting abilities, have improved family relationships and improved bonding and attachment to their children.
This project is supported in partnership with the Tampon Tax Fund.
Mental Health has been a priority for Comic Relief’s funding in the UK for over ten years we have invested in therapeutic services, services for young people, campaigning and policy change work, anti-stigma and discrimination work and maternal mental health.
£30 could improve mental health and support networks for people experiencing or at risk of poor mental health.
