PANDAS FOUNDATION Pre and Postnatal Depression Advice and Support – committed to continuous support for all parents from conception through to birth and beyond. They aim to ensure that the NHS are supported by us through their perinatal mental health charity.
PANDAS FOUNDATION are committed to supporting every parent and their network for their continued well being during and beyond the Coronavirus.
PANDAS want to support the NHS and release some of the burden and backlog from a mental health patient perspective.
- A reminder that they are operating their helpline FREE from all UK landlines and mobile phones. Available Monday – Sunday 9am-8pm – 0808 1961 776.
- They also offer their free email support service with a response within 72 hours [email protected].
Whilst respecting the government advice in relation to support groups, they have made the decision to pause the face to face groups. These will re-commence once they have been advised that its safe to do so.
Whilst they cannot give medical advice, they are here, business as usual with eager and supportive trained volunteers ready to offer hope and empathy. Please do use their services when considering your mental health to ease the stress from the NHS as much as possible.
PANDAS Foundation are anticipating an increase in calls and support offered for support services. Whilst their services remain free, they are reliant on donations to keep going. If you would like to donate please contact [email protected] for interesting (house-bound) ideas and suggestions for fundraising, with your child’s input.
