Perinatal mental health community services development fund wave 2

Applications are now open to Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships for the second wave of the Perinatal Mental Health community services development fund.

The purpose of the fund is to develop specialist perinatal mental health community services, and increase the availability of high quality interventions and support for women, their babies and families. In common with round one, wave two focuses on expanding existing specialist community teams into a wider geography or resourcing new teams to meet the needs of the population more comprehensively.

A total of £23 million is available through the wave two fund this year and from 2019/20 funding for specialist perinatal mental health community services will be allocated through clinical commissioning group baseline (CCG) budgets.

Proposals must demonstrate how they will support achievement of the core outcomes for the perinatal mental health programme and should be submitted on the application form below to england.perinatalCSDF2@nhs.net before 5pm on 9 March 2018.
