With the first ever Neonatal Mental Health Awareness Week taking place next month between 15-21 April, we would like to explore how vCreate’s Secure Video Diary is helping mums and dads of premature and sick babies, who are receiving specialist care in the neonatal unit.
Already an incredibly stressful time for parents, separation anxiety can only add to the already heavy strain on a person's mental wellbeing. With video updates from the NICU helping to connect parents with their babies when they are apart, we would like to investigate the impact they are having further, with your help.
Survey on the vCreate Experience
We have created a survey for parents who have received vCreate video updates from the NICU, and we would be extremely grateful if you could spare a few minutes to complete it. You can access the survey here, thank you in advance for your help.
Neonatal Mental Health Awareness Week
Don’t forget to give Neonatal Mental Health Awareness Week a follow on Facebook and on Twitter, to keep up to date with the excellent work that is being done. NICU MHAW is working to help provide better support for families with babies receiving care in the neonatal unit and beyond. Another focus is on the wellbeing of staff working in these units and caring for the most vulnerable of us, let's get behind this campaign and make a change.
