who are we?

The Cedar House Support Group is for mothers experiencing prenatal and postnatal depression. We offer support to mothers by holding free weekly group therapy sessions. The groups provide a safe, supportive and confidential environment where mothers can get together with others who may be feeling similar to themselves and are facilitated by our specialist postnatal depression counsellor, Liz Wise. Liz has extensive experience in facilitating groups, providing counselling and has personal experience of the illness.

We have been running groups in Surrey since 2004 and now also facilitate groups in South London. Each group provides creche facilities and a partners/family evening is held each term to offer extended support. This helps their recovery by normalising feelings and reducing the sense of isolation that postnatal depression can bring.

The charity was set up in 2004 by Liz Wise and a mother that she had supported through postnatal depression. Our aim is to provide a lifeline to parents experiencing this debilitating illness at a time when you are supposedly meant to be happy and content, not depressed, anxious and perhaps unable to enjoy your new baby. Every person involved has their story and we are here to make sure yours has a happy ending.
