My name is <<your name>> and I am a PANDA Community Champion Volunteer.
Community Champions help PANDA - Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia raise awareness about perinatal anxiety and depression and postnatal psychosis. As someone who has personally experienced this serious mental health condition, I want to ensure other new and expecting parents know about this illness so they are aware of the signs and symptoms and get help early.
PANDA is a specialist not for profit organisation that provides the only free national helpline dedicated to perinatal (the period from pregnancy to one year after childbirth) mental health. PANDA has a unique purpose: to address the specific emotional and mental health needs of expecting and new parents to minimise the risks of potentially devastating outcomes associated with unrecognised and untreated perinatal mental illness.
I am hoping you’d be able to help raise awareness by displaying some PANDA brochures in a suitable location? These brochures will help to inform others about the risks and where to get help.
I can deliver the brochures to your practice, just let me know a suitable time/date.
I look forward to hearing from you.
