Get involved & support Nurture
There are many ways you can get involved with Nurture, from fundraising and donating, to hosting an event or attending one of ours. Whether you’re volunteering your skills or raising money on our behalf we’re always extremely grateful for the thought and effort made by everyone who contributes to the running and success of the charity.
Each year in Ireland, approximately 22,000 women are diagnosed with antenatal and postnatal depression. Postpartum psychosis affects approximately one in every 1,000 women in Ireland. Thousands more women suffer from depression brought on by the death of a baby or fertility problems. More than one in five pregnancies ends in miscarriage and around 500 babies die around the time of birth each year.
Every year Nurture’s helps hundreds of women, men and their families get back to living a healthy & happy life and our mission is to be able to offer our services and supports nationwide to any woman, man or family that needs our services. We need your help to make our mission a reality.
Nurture have qualified counsellors who are specially trained to guide, listen to and support women, men and their families around pregnancy and childbirth related depression in an affordable and confidential environment. Our counsellors also facilitate our support groups and life skills courses and all our administration is done by a small dedicated team of volunteers which includes our CEO.
Nurture is a registered Irish charity and receives some funding towards specific services from the National Office for Suicide Prevention which we are delighted about but we are still heavily reliant on donations from the public to cover all our services. This is why we so desperately need your help. Your time, effort, and contributions will enable Nurture to provide crucial support services to mothers, fathers, partners and families affected by pregnancy and childbirth related mental health illnesses.
You can help us continue our lifesaving work by making a donation to Nurture today – every donation means so much to our clients.
