Looking to the Future

Mel’s Story

Prior to pandemic a few years ago I was diagnosed with a case of postpartum psychosis and admitted to a mother and baby unit in another borough.  After the serious part of my illness subsided, without the need for a mental health section, I returned.

On my return I was given a nurse and then therapist and an occupational therapist.  Along recovery was in progress I couldn’t have been better advised by these along with my very (very very) few friends and Innovate founder Leanne and director no.2 Angela

Thanks to them I am in one piece still, literally…. I was discharged at the beginning of lockdown but have still managed to stay well.

As for my son… he and his big sis are fine and so is my other half xx
