PND on The Project
18th Feb 2016
PANDA worked closely with The Project on their feature story that aired Wednesday February 17th. Thank you to The Project for helpling PANDA raise awareness of this incredibly important issue. More than 100,000 Australian parents struggle with perinatal anxiety or depression each year, however on average callers to our Helpline wait over 12 months before reaching out for help.
PANDA is committed to raising awareness so that more Australians are aware of the prevalence of perinatal anxiety and depression and are able to identify signs and symptoms early on. Reaching out for help in the early stages is the best step towards minimizing the potential impact of perinatal anxiety or depression on mums, dads, families and communities.
Everyday on the Helpline we talk to parents who have different experiences of parenthood and we know that everyone's journey is unique- it's not all black and white. Thank you to all our supporters who continue to speak openly about the realities of parenthood and help us break down the stigma around perinatal anxiety and depression. Let's keep those conversations going so that no parent suffers in silence.
