Sheffield Light is a small charity run by volunteers providing support across Sheffield to families affected by perinatal mental health illnesses, including postnatal depression and anxiety. Light does not offer medical advice, it provides peer to peer support, face to face support, buddying, telephone and email support. The support they offer covers issues during pregnancy, birth and afterwards.
Sheffield Light provide support in a number of ways:
- Drop-in Session - they hold drop-in sessions and support groups in Sheffield.
