The Health Minister, Robin Swann, has assured me (both publicly and privately) that addressing and improving mental health and perinatal mental health remains his priority.
But this needs to be translated into action; and action, right now, is funding – both immediate and recurring, for specialist teams to function.
We remain hopeful that funding is coming and coming soon.
Thanks to both View Digital and New Letter Belfast for covering the need for funding to be released for Specialist Perinatal Mental Health Services ASAP.
