Information for Dads

Feeling unwell yourself and/or supporting a partner who is unwell can be really challenging. Becoming a parent is a time of huge adjustment and can be very stressful for all concerned.

Mothers for Mothers Support Group

Mothers for Mothers is a registered charity who offer support to mothers and families affected by perinatal mental illness (PMI) across Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

They offer support to women during pregnancy and until their youngest child attends school. Their services are delivered by women with lived experience of PNI. Their helpline 0117 9359366 offers phone, text and online support seven days a week, including weekly support calls at a pre-arranged time. They offer Home Visits for women who are too unwell to access services and activities outside of their home. Their Counselling Service offers mothers and fathers a safe place to talk about their feelings with a non-judgemental and empathic listener and find ways to cope with difficulties. They also run four weekly Support Groups in Staple Hill, Barton Hill, Hartcliffe and Bedminster.
