1 in 4 women in the community suffer from perinatal mood disorders (from conception to 18 months post birth). They feel isolated and reluctant to talk about what they are experiencing due to stigma, lack of knowledge, or misunderstanding from other around them.
Menucha was launched in 2019 by a group of Orthodox Jewish women in North West London with first-hand experience of postnatal depression and perinatal mental health issues.
We are a registered charity aiming to provide advice and support that empowers Jewish women and their families. We work to improve accessibility to culturally appropriate services, raise awareness, promote understand, and reduce the stigma of this issue.
