Family Action Lambeth Perinatal Support Service

Overview

The Family Action Perinatal Support Services are early intervention, low intensity services for those with low to moderate level diagnosed mental health issues or who are at risk of developing perinatal mental illness. The services are led by a professional project co-ordinator, with an early years, health or social care background, and provided by a team of volunteer befrienders  who have experience of parenthood and sometimes have received help from the service themselves.

They work with families from before the baby is born to at least one year after.

Taking a multi agency approach, they work closely with midwives, health visitors, GPs, Children’s Centres and existing perinatal teams to enhance what is available to families where mothers are suffering with mental health difficulties. Safeguarding, training and regular supervision of volunteers are key standards
