Upcoming Events

three handprintsVolunteering Event – 26th April 2014

We are hosting an event in April for people who have been personally affected by PP and are interested in helping us. We will be talking about the work of the charity and the different ways people can volunteer with us to help raise awareness of PP, offer support to others and fundraise. Members of APP will be at the event to let you know more about the following ways you can volunteer.

  • Peer Supporters
    Peer Supporters are people with experience of PP who provide support for mothers and families who are recovering from PP, either via our online forum or our 1:1 email service.
  • Media Volunteers
    We support people with experience of Postpartum Psychosis (PP) to share their story and talk to the media.
  • Regional Representatives
    We are developing a network of regional representatives to help us raise awareness of PP, spread information and fundraise in their local area. There will be a workshop at the event to develop resources to support people in Regional Representative roles.

At the event there will be an optional ‘video booth’ where you can record your thoughts about PP which will help us develop informative online PP resources & videos.

Travel and accommodation expenses will be reimbursed and refreshments provided throughout the day.

If you’d like to know more about becoming an APP Regional Representative, a Peer Supporter, a Media Volunteer, or helping with awareness raising and fundraising, or there are any other technical or administrative skills you can offer, come along to find out more.

It will be held at: The Barberry, 25 Vincent drive, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2FG on 26th April 2014.

It’s a great chance to meet other PP women and to discuss ideas to change things for the future.
