Director of Frome Birth Talk, Suzy Cristinacce, attended the Hearts and Minds Partnership meet-up recently. This is her account of the day.
"The Hearts and Minds Partnership is a network of community perinatal mental health organisations working across England. The gathering on the 30th January was the first ever annual meet-up of members. It was an opportunity to share experience and ideas as well as celebrate the work of this vital sector. For example, I took part in workshops about looking after our own wellbeing and funding. There was also an interesting panel discussion that included an academic who works in the field, people who had set up grassroots organisations and a representative from the National Lottery.
I came away with lots of information about the support that is available for diverse families, and we will be able to share lots of that via social media in the coming weeks."
