New and expectant mothers will be given access to mental health services during pregnancy and after childbirth across England within the next year, as health officials focus on providing more help to under-served areas of the nation.NHS England said that estimates suggested only 3% of the country had good access to perinatal mental health care as recently as 2014, but that it expected to have extended that to 100% by next April.Mental ill health doesnt discriminate, said Claire Murdoch, the national mental health director for NHS England. It can happen to anyone at any time and it disrupts life not just for mums but the whole family, which is why we are absolutely committed to driving forward improvements in care and ensuring this important area of mental health continues to get the attention it deserves.
