Kiran’s story #International WomensDay

‘I felt like my mind didn’t belong to me. But I got help and feel like a new woman.’

Today is International Women’s Day, a worldwide campaign which aims to raise awareness of women’s rights and stories across the world. See some of the amazing women who have shared their stories of maternal mental health problems and are helping to tackle the stigma around this issue.

Comic Relief has been helping to fund maternal mental health projects in the UK since 2010, which help support mothers like Kiran, and their families.
