Close to 551,000 people in the UK are managing a mental health condition. A large proportion of these are people who may be contemplating pregnancy or are at risk of unplanned pregnancy.
Through this partnership with @tommys_baby, @publichealthengland, @nhsengland and @lifeatkings have developed supportive resources for those who are planning a pregnancy or may wish to become pregnant in the future.
Mental health conditions can refer to a wide range of conditions. The new resources we have created have been developed to specifically offer support to those who have been diagnosed with a mental health condition. These conditions include bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, severe depression and psychosis.
