Mental Health Support Services
Perinatal Mental Health
The Perinatal Mental Health service supports mothers experiencing a severe mental illness through a programme of treatment and support in the community and in their specialist inpatient unit.
Community-based care includes:
- advice and support over the telephone
- outpatient consultations in clinics, GP surgeries or at home
- support and guidance for an individual’s family
- and a range of therapy sessions.
Their inpatient service is available to women who have severe mental illness from 24 weeks of pregnancy until a child is one-year-old. The unit, based at Melbury Lodge in Winchester, has been designed especially for mothers and babies, to make it a safe, welcoming and relaxing environment.
