Clinical Services

This refers to a health professional who could be a GP, Midwife or Health Visitor as your primary point of contact.

But this also refers to the specialist mental health services and perinatal mental health services that should be available to meet any specialist needs. If you can, take your partner or a friend with you for moral support.

Remember these health professionals are there to listen and have the knowledge and skills to help you get better.


The provision of Mental Health Care Training and Specialist Services is vastly under resourced across most of the UK which results in a lack of service and/or long waiting times such that few people receive the necessary treatment to make a full recovery. For more details read Perinatal Mental Health – The Scale of the Problem
