Moment HealthStep forward Moment Healtha new Belfast tech startup that's on a mission to prioritise maternal mental health and provide new parents with the tools and knowledge they need to sustain good mental wellbeing – from pregnancy through to parenthood.

Providing a digital solution that offers early intervention for maternal mental health illnesses, Moment Health have built products that include a website, app and online community that aim to provide better access to mental health resources for the world’s mums and dads.

Connecting new mothers and their families with the tools and knowledge they need to sustain good mental health and recover from illness, Moment Health's analytics-based tech aims to provides valuable and accurate information, allowing people and their clinicians to take the right steps towards recovery. Parents can keep track of their mental health, and only a few simple taps is all it takes to complete a clinical survey regularly used by medical professionals to help diagnose PND, and receive practical support.

Parents can also keep a journal of their emotions, with the emotion diary delivering weekly reports to parents about how they’re feeling and if in need of support, parents can find the resources that are geographically convenient to them.
