Jessica and Jon, parent contributors of Best Beginnings' Out of the Blue films, share their story of mental health issues following the birth of their second daughter.

At the launch of the Out of the Blue films on 23rd March 2017, two of the parent contributors Jessica and Jon shared their story in the hopes it will empower others to do the same.

We shared our story with Best Beginnings to let families across country know that they are not alone and that they have nothing to feel ashamed or embarrassed about. We are hoping that people watching our story on the Baby Buddy app or on line will encourage them  to open up and talk to someone as soon as possible because bottling things up just makes them worse.

Talking about mental health is so important as it raises awareness and reduces the stigma allowing families to feel confident to get help sooner.

I’m really impressed with the Out of the Blue films and think it is great news that there is a film especially for fathers. These films would have made such a difference to us when we were going through our challenges. Knowing we are helping other families by sharing our story is an amazing feeling.
