Corrie's Jennie McAlpine backs maternal mental health campaign

Jennie McAlpine, who plays Fiz Stape in Coronation Street, is supporting a new campaign by the National Childbirth Trust to help encourage people to talk more openly about maternal mental health.

Jennie said: “Since becoming a mother myself, I know just what an amazing job mums do. I'm in awe of all of us! I can also see that so much more needs to be done to support mums whose mental health is suffering, for their own wellbeing and the wellbeing of their families. If you need help - please ask someone. I’ve seen myself how support can make all the difference.”

Half of new mothers are concerned about their mental health and many are suffering in silence, according to new research released today by NCT as it launches its #BeyondBabyBlues campaign supported by celebrities.

The #BeyondBabyBlues campaign aims to encourage people to talk more openly about maternal mental health, to avoid the mistake of dismissing potentially serious mental health issues in themselves, friends or family and to seek help.
