PATH is an EU-funded project that aimed to enable women, families and healthcare professionals to prevent, diagnose and successfully manage mild to moderate perinatal mental health issues.

Response to the conflict in Ukraine

PATH partners unite in their condemnation of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and support the call for an immediate cessation to the current conflict and hostilities. War and armed conflict can have particularly devastating consequences on the mental wellbeing and physical health of pregnant women, babies, children and their families, with impact lasting across generations. Ensuring timely access to adequate physical and mental health support in the perinatal period for all displaced families is vital in reducing the risk of adverse outcomes.


It’s been particularly difficult over the past year. Many parenting groups haven’t been able to continue face to face meetings but there are many online groups available. Take a look at our support services lists or speak with your health visitor for support networks that are near you.
