PANDSI is a not-for-profit community organisation funded by ACT Health and donations to provide an early intervention service to mums and families suffering from perinatal depression and anxiety.
PANDSI offers support, information and referral to almost 300 mothers and families a year through:
• Support groups with free childcare
• Telephone Support
• Dads Information Nights
• Outreach to Child and Family Centres
Clients overwhelmingly value the supportive, safe, non-judgmental environment provided by PANDSI.
“Thank you so much. Those first months were so bleak and dark but you’re your support and understanding, the sun has come up in our little family. I could not have done it without you. Please know that all that you provide changes lives and builds families and brings women, including me, back from horror and blackness. Thank you, thank you and thank you again.”
“I can’t thank you all enough for your support of me these past few months. I honestly believe that it would’ve taken me much longer to conquer my PND were it not for the fantastic services you provide (including the amazing care my little boy had from your childcare staff every week)! Keep up the great work, the mums of Canberra need you!”
