Depression relating to conception,  pregnancy and childbirth is not linked to age or social status nor is it associated with just women, it affects men too.  Nurture Health also offers affordable and accessible counselling support services to men to support them with their own related wellbeing difficulties.

Facilitated Support Groups

With our professional counsellors we support women who would like to join our facilitated support groups. These groups are truly inspirational for women as they attend the group initially as a stranger and generally leave have made life long real friends.

Wellbeing Training Programmes

In Nurture Health through our years of experience working in the area of wellbeing we understand how important it is for women to be supported both in the workplace and at home. We have designed several wellbeing programmes such as:

WOW (Wellness of Women in the Workplace)

Returning Back to Work (After maternity leave)

We also have future plans to develop and design other relevant wellbeing programmes which will assist and support women nationwide.

Wellness Information Days

Women are open to further understanding of their own daily stresses and anxieties in their lives. The key is to acknowledge these stresses and learn how to keep well and maintain a busy life work / home balance. Our wellness information days address these issues and help you with new resources and understanding as to how to keep well and feel happy about doing so.

Nurture works alongside GP’s, Health professionals, Maternity hospitals, Local HSE primary care teams, Adult mental health services, Public health nurses and Child services, and in conjunction with community groups and other organisations that work in this specific area of mental health.
