Welcome to Acacia Family Support


Acacia Family Support offers a range of free services including peer support to families across Birmingham experiencing pre and postnatal depression/anxiety . However you are feeling and whatever you are going through, we are here to help.

Acacia is an award winning organisation deriving its inspiration and values from the Christian faith.  Our services are open to everyone, regardless of their backgrounds, faith or beliefs. Most of our staff and volunteers have experienced maternal mental health or other mental health problems.

As a result of Covid Acacia is currently experiencing a high volume of referrrals and mums and dads needing our help.  This means that you may be waiting a bit longer than normal to access our service.  We'd like to re-assure you that we are still here for you but unfortunately the increase in demand means that you may be waiting up to 6 - 8 weeks for an assessment at the moment.
