About Us

PANDA – Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia is a specialist not for profit organisation that has helped tens of thousands of Australians get vital information and support for antenatal and postnatal depression for over 30 years. PANDA’s National Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Helpline provides confidential information, support and referral to anyone affected by depression and anxiety during pregnancy and after childbirth (perinatal depression and anxiety), including partners, family members and friends.
