APP has a partnership with Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust to provide peer support for women experiencing Postpartum Psychosis (PP), or other manic / psychotic illnesses around the perinatal period.
Our Peer Support Facilitator, together with sessional Peer Support Workers and volunteers, work both in the Chorley MBU and the Specialist Community Team in Lancashire & South Cumbria. We signpost to other local services if your experience is not PP (or a manic / psychotic illness) and also offer a monthly cafe group, attended by one of the team together with local trained peer support volunteers, for anyone affected by PP - whether they are still in contact with NHS services or not.
