Action on Postpartum Psychosis
Action on Postpartum Psychosis (APP) is the only UK charity dedicated to supporting women and families affected by postpartum psychosis. APP provides peer support, specialist information, challenges stigma, raises awareness and conducts research to better understand the illness. It supports 200 active forum users and 20 one-to-one email users each month. 90% of APP?s beneficiaries have reported that they feel less isolated, better informed and equipped to recover. With support from The Fore, APP will significantly expand its reach, network and impact through equipping its Peer Support Service for Skype delivery and increasing the understanding of the illness among clinicians.
