This year has been incredibly challenging. We are united in ensuring expectant and new parents know… We’re here, we see you.

Perinatal Mental Health Week is a time to raise awareness and collaborate to ensure that parents in need know that they are not alone. 1 in 5 new mums and 1 in 10 new dads experience perinatal depression and anxiety, which is around 100,000 Australian parents each year.

Collaboration is at the heart of this important week. So we are proud to be working with a wide range of organisations across Australia, sharing information and resources to help the community learn about perinatal mental health.
