Following a discussion with Dr Jess Heron who is the Director of Action for Postpartum Psychosis (APP) and a Senior Research Fellow in Perinatal Psychiatry at Birmingham University, it was decided that the group I sing with (Frenzaloud) could support her project. APP has acquired funding from Comic Relief but this has to be matched. In an effort to secure extra monies, Jess has suggested that on World Maternal Mental Health Day, APP invites everyone to ‘Sing, Play, Perform’ and support Music 4 Mums. The plan is that mothers will be celebrated with musical events around the country. At our last practice Frenz performed a song on postnatal depression specifically written and arranged by Chris Potter. A second song was arranged for us by Jennie Muskett. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLu552v_-rqWUsgygTyJERBeevPOhvENe6
We hope to add more to the collection in the near future, and hope to have a concert to support APP.
