Postnatal depression is a growing public health concern, affecting around 1 in 8 women in the UK. New research has suggested that group singing can support recovery, especially among women with moderate-severe symptoms. This round-table brings together a synthesis of the current evidence along with perspectives from researchers, clinicians and practitioners on how singing can support maternal mental health.

This is part of our ‘Art of Science’ talks series. Take a look at the other talks in this series.
