In 2017 we collaborated with CreativeConnection to create an animation to showcase Sussex Partnership NHS Trust’s incredible Specialist Perinatal Mental Health Service. This community-based service supports mothers who are experiencing, or who have previously experienced, severe mental health difficulties during pregnancy, or up to a year after birth. They provide support to women and their families across East Sussex, West Sussex, Brighton & Hove and East Surrey.
Thank you to those who contributed to this film, especially to the women who use the service, who shared their stories with us.
