This week is #PANDAWeek2018 to acknowledge perinatal anxiety and depression among new parents. One of the main reasons many expecting and new parents affected by perinatal anxiety and depression and postnatal psychosis don’t reach out for help is because they don’t understand what is happening to them.
We’re proud to be funding Murrumbidgee Local Health District to implement the early intervention post-natal depression initiative across the Murrumbidgee. The program provides wellbeing sessions for parents at playgroups and antenatal classes.
