The Parent Rooms

PERINATAL MENTAL HEALTH CHARITY

 

The Parents Room (Formerly We Are Pangs) was founded in January 2014 by Michelle Bradley, a first-time mother who at the time was struggling with postnatal anxiety and depression.

We began as an online peer support group called PANGS NI which grew very quickly to include hundreds of women from all over Northern Ireland.

As the group grew, it became obvious that many families were struggling and receiving little or no support. It was also clear that it was difficult to find information about what services and supports were available.

Our ultimate goal is to ensure that every parent across Northern Ireland can access timely and appropriate care to help them recover from mental illness. We aim to do this through a range of projects including growing a province-wide peer support network, hosting training and education events, campaigning for better services and providing support to our colleagues who work with parents with mental health issues. We want to create a collaboration with parents at its centre so that as a community we can ensure that no parent is left behind, struggling alone.

If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, OCD or other mental health concerns, you can join our online peer support group on Facebook here. For online self-help and resources, please visit our website, www.theparentrooms.co.uk.
