Funds raised so far
*End Sept 2018
Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia supports women, men and families across Australia affected by anxiety and depression during pregnancy and in the first year of parenthood. PANDA operates Australia’s only National Helpline for individuals and their families to recover from perinatal anxiety and depression, a serious illness that affects up to one in five expecting or new mums and one in ten expecting or new dads.
One of the key reasons many expecting and new parents who struggle with perinatal anxiety or depression don’t seek help is because they don’t know what’s happening to them. Even though it’s an illness that affects up to one in five expecting or new mums and one in ten dads, many people still don’t know its signs and symptoms. And many still don’t know where to go to seek help.
So our donations our go towards helping PANDA spread the word about perinatal anxiety and depression - so mamas and dads just like us can seek help and recover more quickly.
Some of the funds will go towards the Community Champions program through which volunteers share their stories and also distribute information and resources to help raise awareness about perinatal anxiety and depression and postnatal psychosis and reduce shame and stigma around perinatal anxiety, depression and postnatal psychosis so people don’t delay seeking help.
PANDA know the sooner people seek help, the sooner they can recover and move on with their lives.
