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.
