The helpline, 1300 726 306, operates Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm AEST and is staffed by trained counsellors and volunteers.
In 2013, PANDA launched a dedicated website on perinatal depression and anxiety for dads; How is Dad Going? to provide information to help dads look after themselves and those around them.
Almost 100,000 expecting and new parents in Australia are struggling with perinatal depression or anxiety each year. PANDA’s services are governed by the knowledge that women and men do recover from perinatal depression and anxiety and are designed to ensure that those affected receive appropriate help as early as possible.
PANDA is committed to a community where perinatal depression and anxiety are recognised and the impact on women, men and their families is minimised through acknowledgement, support and education.
