About COPE

Reducing distress, giving hope…
in pregnancy & early parenthood


Centre of Perinatal Excellence (COPE) is a not-for-profit organisation devoted to reducing the impacts of emotional and mental health problems in the pre and postnatal periods.

Our history and foundations are underpinned by extensive research and best practice. Building upon this, COPE provides a national, dedicated focus to perinatal mental health, to address the identified issues that we know are currently preventing people from accessing timely and effective, information and care.

Through our corporate objectives and governance, COPE works with others who to achieve our purpose. Our work to date has been made possible through the invaluable financial and probono contributions of our partners. We invite you to join us and also support us – as we work together to improve the lives of the many thousands of families currently affected by these debilitating and often devastating conditions.
