PANDA Week 10-16 November 2019: Let’s get real. Perinatal anxiety and depression is serious.
There’s a lot of baggage around mental health, and the mental health of expecting and new parents is no exception.
Too many people are still afraid to talk about perinatal anxiety and depression. Too many people don’t know the signs and symptoms, or where to seek help if they’re struggling. Too many people are afraid to reveal what they’re feeling or delay seeking help because of fear of being seen as bad parents.
We want expecting and new parents and their families to feel they can be open and honest about their feelings. As a community, we need to ‘get real’ about perinatal anxiety and depression.
This is what PANDA Week 2019 is all about! For more information go to www.panda.org.au/
