Behind the Mask This film presents real life stories of new parents who've experienced and overcome perinatal depression and anxiety. It talks honestly about their stories and features insights from experts and health professionals. It provides an opportunity to look behind the mask of secrecy that often conceals the true feelings of those effected by this debilitating condition.
You can view the DVD trailer on

PANDA supports perinatal depression playgroup for Defence Force families

Last Updated on Saturday, 28 June 2014 00:48

pandapost and ante natal depression parents support family group activities volunteer nt defence force

PANDA is supporting Australian Defence Force families in the Northern Territory with the set-up of a Perinatal Depression (PND) Support Group in Darwin.

Through our PANDA Guide to Postnatal Depression Support Groups, PANDA has provided guidance on structuring the setup, monitoring and further development of the group as well as a range of activities that can be undertaken.

The group was instigated by a local volunteer mum and has also received the backing of The Defence Community Organisation (DCO) which has provided a space to gather and counsellors and support workers if needed. 

The group has got off to a positive start with local support and 2 facilitators sharing their personal, lived experience of perinatal depression. PANDA will provide ongoing advice and assistance to the group’s facilitators as well as practical resources such as fact sheets on ‘Recovering from postnatal depression’ to assist parents suffering and those caring for them.
