At Acacia, we are committed to making sure that all mothers receive equitable access to excellent perinatal mental health support services and information. To help with this, we have produced a series of short multilingual films, each in a different language: Punjabi, Mirpuri, Urdu, Gujarati, Slovakian and Dari. Each film aims to raise awareness of perinatal mental health issues in a culturally appropriate way and explain how to seek help.
We are hoping that these films are dissemintated far and wide in the UK and this is only the beginning. More films/languages will be added as funding allows. Click on the films below to view.
