“Perinatal anxiety and depression
affects up to one in five expecting or new mums and one in ten expecting or new dads.”
In this one hour presentation with Josie, you will learn about perinatal anxiety and depression, specifically, the signs and symptoms, impacts of the illness and what you can do to support someone struggling.
Josie experienced perinatal anxiety and depression with both of her children and since recovering has been volunteering for the past four years, with Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Australia, as a community educator and champion. Josie also uses her lived experience to raise awareness, reduce shame and stigma and encourages affected people to seek help through her venture ‘Smiling after PND’.
