More help for mothers with serious mental illness

A new programme will help an extra 30,000 new or expectant mothers who experience serious mental ill health.

NHS England is launching a £5m perinatal community services development fund to help close a wide gap in the availability of high quality care for women with severe or complex conditions. Fewer than 15% of areas currently provide services to levels recommended in national guidelines, and more than 40% provide no service at all.
