Next month will be a full year recovering from perinatal anxiety and depression round 2. What better way to celebrate than with a fundraiser proudly supporting PANDA – an organisation very close to my heart, and, one I have been volunteering with for over 4 and a half years.
On Sunday, November 10 at 2pm, please join me at Porgie and Mr Jones to celebrate my recovery and to help raise funds for PANDA.
So, where does the money exactly go?
$50 could help supply vital information and resources to mums and dads affected by perinatal anxiety and depression and postnatal psychosis so they can get support and recover more quickly.
$100 can help PANDA educate health professionals about these illnesses so when they see patients who are struggling, they know what to do and can provide the right treatment and support.
$200 can help us train our Community Champion volunteers to share their stories in their local communities so people understand perinatal mental illness and expecting and new mums and dads aren’t left to suffer alone.
$500 could provide critical counselling and support to a caller to PANDA’s National Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Helpline – support that could be the turning point for an expecting or new mum or dad, and could even save a life.
Your support will help families like mine recover, from postnatal depression and other perinatal illnesses that get in the way of being the parents we want to be.
I’d love to see as many of you as possible on the day and I know aside from raising money, we are going to have lots of fun!
We will be entertained by the live music of the Chill Project duo and enjoy delicious canapes and cocktails! The auction will be live and done by a very special guest and you won’t go home empty handed with goodies from Bypop Cookies, Husk and much more!
