A message for our community and those who may need our support:
We are currently experiencing more demand for our National Perinatal Mental Health Helpline than ever before. We are getting to calls as quickly as possible but if you ring and can’t get through please do not leave a message, instead check out the tools and resources on our website, including our free, anonymous Mental Health Checklist for Expecting and New Parents. We also encourage you to visit your doctor or call Lifeline on 131114, and remember if you are experiencing an emergency ring 000 or visit your local emergency department. Thank you.
PANDA’s National Perinatal Mental Health Helpline is Australia’s only free, national helpline service for women, men and their families affected by perinatal mental illness.
The Helpline provides a safe and confidential space for any new or expecting parent struggling with the challenges of becoming a new parent.
Our highly trained and caring counsellors can help you work through your challenges by talking openly and honestly about your thoughts, feelings and experiences.
