So the day has arrived! Today we unveil our new organisation name!
We have been thinking about changing the name Recovery Mummy for a while now but wanted to wait until the New Year and for our organisation base to be ready (its only just been built)
The name Recovery Mummy was never intended to be used as the Charity name – Recovery Mummy was started as a personal blog for me (Charlotte Harding, Founder) to talk about my struggles with mental health, past history of alcohol addiction and postpartum psychosis.
When Eastenders aired a story about postpartum psychosis in December 2015 things started to develop. The blog Recovery Mummy became a known name in the perinatal mental health field and parents from Wales started to approach me looking for support.
Within months, a stay at home mum recovering from perinatal mental health difficulties was talking about constitutions, project plans and polices.
We decided a change to the name was needed after some felt like they could not approach us for support. We offer support to all who need it, equality is something we take seriously.
Our polices, mission and aims remain the same – It is just the change of name.
We will now be known as PMH Cymru – Perinatal & Parental Support.
Our Mission is to ensure the protection and promotion of health and well being, amongst parents and parents to be in Wales, suffering from or at risk of perinatal mental health problems and/or substance misuse.
Our aim is to provide a family service for perinatal and parental mental health and/or substance misuse prevention and early intervention in Wales.
Our new home will be at the newly built Hub.
Gabalfa Av, Cardiff CF14 2HU
We will be open every Monday 9.30am – 6pm
Drop in times from 10am – 2.30pm
We will have a range of activities throughout the day which will include 2 courses with Mind Cymru (Enjoy your baby, Enjoy your bump) Mindfulness, birth trauma peer support and much more…
With a new name and a new home we felt it right we have a new logo.
Our logo was very generously and kindly donated by Mummy Blogger Vikki Childs who blogs at Mum Times Two
Hope to see you soon….
Wishing you a happy New Year!
