Bliss launches mental health information and podcast
Bliss has launched new online information to support parents' mental health, as well as its podcast - NICU, SCBU and you. In the first episode Bliss speaks to parents about their experiences on the unit and how it affected their mental health, as well as a health professional who supports parents on the unit.
To support healthcare professionals to start conversations around mental health, the charity has also launched an information card designed to be included in welcome packs for parents.
The card gives parents tips on how to look after their mental health while on the neonatal unit. It acknowledges the challenges parents might be facing and gives ideas from other parents that might help, such as get fresh air and natural light.
This free resource can be ordered from the Bliss shop.
