Light is a charity working to support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of mums and their families in Sheffield and beyond, during pregnancy, birth and afterwards
Light is a peer support charity that was set up by a group of Sheffield mums, each with their own individual stories and experiences. We came together to raise awareness and offer support to families experiencing perinatal mental illness whilst being pregnant or after giving birth, such as postnatal depression and anxiety.
Light provides peer-to-peer support, support groups, telephone and email support.
Light has the following aims:
- To provide support to families who are affected by perinatal mental health illness
- To raise awareness of perinatal mental health in Sheffield and beyond
- To promote partnership and an information network accessible to all
