Additional support

At Bluebell, we want to be there for everyone that needs us. But sometimes, other organisations might be better placed to offer support or to provide additional help.

Below you’ll find a selection of other organisations supporting parents, families and health professionals. We hope you’ll find it useful.  

We also recommend the Perinatal Positivity film (Originally made in English, it has now been translated into Arabic, Urdu, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese) and this series of multilingual films by Acacia Family Support which raise awareness of perinatal mental health in culturally appropriate ways.

Hearts & Minds

This is partnership between Bluebell and two other perinatal mental health charities:  Acacia Family Support in the midlands and Smile Group in the northwest. Parents and health professionals can find local perinatal mental health services by using Hearts & Minds’ interactive map.
