Perinatal Depression & Anxiety Awareness Week was established by PANDA in 2005. Since then PANDA has been leading the perinatal mental health sector in promoting the Week to raise awareness about perinatal anxiety and depression, including signs to look for and where to go to seek support.
With around 100,000 Australian families affected by perinatal anxiety and depression every year, this is a common illness as well as a serious one. Perinatal Depression & Anxiety Awareness Week is therefore a crucial time for PANDA to reach out to communities all across the country. We share information about the illness so people can know what is happening to them, can seek help early and recover more quickly.
During the Week PANDA works with Government, corporate and sector partners and traditional and online media to raise awareness about perinatal anxiety and depression.
