Supporting Parents this PANDA Week


It's Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Awareness (PANDA) Week - drawing attention to the very common issue among new and expecting parents, and the support on offer.

One sign of support from the organisation PANDA is a new online checklist that has been launched to help expecting and new parents assess their emotional well-being.


Terri Smith is the CEO of PANDA, and spoke to Anita on today's Regional Roundup for more information.


New and expecting parents seeking support can call PANDA’s National Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Helpline 1300 726 306 Mon – Fri 9am – 7.30pm AEST/AEDT, or anyone can call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
