Parents in Mind Service Delivery Manager
Sarah is Service Delivery Manager for Parents in Mind, a Department of Health funded NCT project. Parents in Mind provides group and one-to-one peer support for women experiencing perinatal mental health issues. Support is offered in the community by trained volunteers who have lived experience of perinatal mental health issues themselves. The project runs in Coventry and Warwickshire, Widnes and Runcorn and Newham, London. Sarah has academic and practical experience within the voluntary sector running mentoring, befriending and peer support projects and managing volunteers. She has a personal and professional interest in perinatal mental health, particularly birth trauma, and is an advocate of the positive role that peer support can play in removing the stigma and isolation of the mental health issues in pregnancy and parenthood.
