In order to improve the resources for young families, the health unit needs to learn more about their experiences during pregnancy and after their baby was born. The Renfrew County and District Perinatal and Infant Mental Health Working Group is looking for help from the community. An online survey has been prepared for for expectant families or families who have a baby under the age of one. The questions in the survey are related to: – Services that families know about, have accessed or wanted to access and couldn’t; – How supportive families feel the programs and services are in their community; – How accessing services affected their overall well-being and confidence level; – How families would like to receive information. Anyone who has a baby on the way or has a baby under one year of age is eligible to participate in the survey. Participants will have the option to enter into a draw to win one of four gas gift cards. This survey is private and anonymous. The responses will be used to plan future programs and services. We want to hear from all mothers, fathers, guardians and caregivers.To complete the survey, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YPTZ5KN
