Dr Neha Rawat. colleagues and family of PPIMHS (Perinatal Parent Infant Mental Health Service) at NELFT (North East London NHS Foundation Trust) are running the 10k Great Newham London run on Sunday 2 July in aid of APP.
All runners in the 10k will get the chance to have their very own Olympic moment as they finish inside the Stadium and cross the famous finish line and running track! They say:
"We are a community perinatal mental health service and our running team is composed of doctors, therapists, nurses, social workers, admin, sons and daughters...
We have seen and experienced closely how damaging postpartum psychosis can be for mothers and families and what it means to have timely help and intervention.
The support that charities like Action on Postpartum Psychosis (APP) provide, in addition to professional intervention from services like ours, to families goes a long way in helping families manage this very difficult time and experience.
We are running in support of Action on Postpartum Psychosis - a charity that's close to our hearts and that has been working tirelessly with professionals and families to improve lives of families affected by postnatal psychosis. This is our way of saying thank you to the tireless work that APP does and has been doing with mums and families."
A very big THANK YOU to all fourteen team members running this event! Please support them and donate via their Virgin Money Giving page here .
