What’s it all about?

The aim of Neonatal Mental Health Awareness Week is to get our voices heard, inspire change, give people courage to seek help and make them feel less isolated.

This is why Leo’s wants to campaign, with the support of other UK based organisations, neonatal units and neonatal, maternity & perinatal mental health networks, for funded and planned mental health support for everyone involved in the neonatal pathway. 

We want to utilise the week to share best practice between charities, organisations & units, raise more awareness and unite for better care. It’s a big task and we can’t do it alone, which is why we’re looking for supporting organisations such as charities, maternity, perinatal mental health and neonatal networks and allied health professionals to stand with us.

You can take a look at our full document below & please feel free to look around the different pages. Don’t worry if you’ve arrived here at the start of our work, there’s plenty more assets, case studies, our survey findings and more coming your way.
