Hello, I’m Rosey – 29, Mother to three – My daughter K aged 10 and my two sons C aged 8 and ‘Mr Squish’ aged 5.
I experienced Antenatal and Postnatal Depression with each of them and in December 2013 wrote the poem PNDandMe.
Shortly after this #PNDHour our twitter support network was founded and we connect people each Wednesday with the hashtag between 8-9pm. Find my Twitter profile here
We live in the Perthshire where I spend my time raising awareness and supporting those affected by Perinatal Mental Illness via this blog and the two twitter peer support networks detailed below. I have a certificate in Mental Health First Aid as well as ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training).
I host #PNDHour every Wednesday via Twitter between 8-9pm we discuss a wide range of topics surrounding Perinatal Mental Illness.
My work with #PNDHour has been featured in Mother & Baby magazine, Parent & Infant, the Mirror, CBT Today, MAMA Academy, Daily Record, Local newspapers, New! Magazine, NCT national magazine.
I’ve also done radio interviews with BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio London and BBC World Service.
#PNDHour is listed on MIND and NCT as Postnatal Depression peer support.
#PNDHour is listed on the Royal College of General Practitioners Perinatal Mental Health Toolkit
#PNDHour has connected thousands of people with either a professional or personal interest in Perinatal Mental Illness.
Please get in touch if there’s anything I can help with!
