Here are some of the highlights of what the Improving Perinatal Mental Health HIT has achieved so far.

Dr Jonathan Evans and Inge Shepherd, Directors of the Improving Perinatal Mental Health Health Integration Team, give an update on progress in 2016-17, including the successful application for a new specialist community perinatal mental health service.

Health Integration Teams (HITs) have brought £3,988,121 of funding to the region since July 2016. Some of these awards are for research, while others are for service innovation.

New and expectant mothers in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire will now have access to specialist mental health support, thanks to new funding from NHS England.
