"I can´t thank PANDSI staff enough for the help they´ve given me. Getting PND was the first time I´d experienced any mental health issue in my life and it hit me like a brick! It was the hardest time in my life, and for a long time PANDSI was the only support I felt I had. It´s a fantastic organisation."
Pathway to Wellness
PANDSI is a not-for-profit community service providing support, referral and information to families affected by perinatal depression and anxiety. Many people struggle with parenthood with up to 20% of women and 10% of men experiencing symptoms of perinatal depression and anxiety when having a new child.
When families contact PANDSI they realise they are not alone in the way that they are feeling and gain strength from the knowledge that others understand the place that they are in. Our support workers provide a number of programs to help families understand their perinatal depression and provide strategies to cope and recover. We also offer a telephone support service and ring clients regularly to check how they are managing and put them in touch with other supports should they need them.
Your valued donation will help us assist mums and dads in the ACT find their pathway to wellness.
