Mental Health Support

Mental Health Support




The impacts of poverty can threaten people’s mental health and wellbeing, but a network of support can make a vital difference. This gift connects people with mental illness and their families with trained support workers and access to psychiatric services.

How your gift helps

Pregnancy, childbirth and adjusting to motherhood can all be challenging. Supporting women’s mental health at these times, along with their physical health, is crucial. That’s why traditional birth attendants Premi and Ladoo (pictured) are being equipped by Tearfund’s partner SaCHA with mental health training which they can incorporate into antenatal visits. This holistic support from birth attendants can be a lifeline for women as they welcome a new baby into the world.


All printed cards and envelopes use PEFC certified paper and are produced according to ISO 14001 environmental standards.
