In Memory Of Melbourne Mother Louise Litis

Postnatal depression aka PND is a subject that is very close many Melbourne parents' hearts and minds.

Around 1 in 7 expecting or new mums in Australia will be affected by perinatal anxiety or depression and about 1 in 10 dads will also experience the condition, which amounts to over 100,000 new parents affected every year.**

The transition to parenthood is difficult. "Nothing prepares you for a baby" is a cliche term, but oh-so-true. As soon as your little baby arrives home for the first time, your life changes dramatically. Sometimes adjusting to that change is overwhelming and very difficult. Support during the early weeks of life with a newborn is inevitably important, but unfortunately, not always available.

Spotting the early signs of PND is tricky, because you don't know what you should be looking for. That is when PANDA's FREE Helpline may help.

PANDA is a non-profit, self-help organisation, which provides information, support and referral to anyone affected by post and antenatal mood disorders. PANDA is an invaluable service for anyone who may be struggling.

PANDA’s National Helpline manages around 10,000 calls each year. Over the last twelve months PANDA has seen a 50 per cent increase in men contacting the Helpline.**

This Friday, PANDA holds its 8th annual lunch, which is hosted in memory of Louise Litis, a woman who very sadly died following a battle with postnatal depression 8 years ago.

Each year, members of the Melbourne community who support PANDAs mission, get together in Federation Square for the annual lunch, which helps raise awareness and vital funds to assist the important not for profit organisation.

The Age’s social affairs reporter Miki Perkins who experienced postnatal depression herself, will host a panel conversation at the lunch with KIIS FM radio host and PANDA Ambassador Matt Tilley emceeing the event.

While PANDA shouldn't be used as a substitute for your own health professional's advice, if you, or anyone you know, would like to speak to someone relating to possible perinatal anxiety or depression, please call the Helpline on 1300 726 306. The Helpline operations 10am to 5pm EST.
