Supporting health professionals caring for patients with Perinatal Depression and Anxiety
Gidget Foundation Australia provides free specialist psychological treatment services for families suffering emotional distress during pregnancy and early parenting.
Our specialist perinatal mental health clinicians provide a wide range of individual and parent-infant therapies to expectant and new parents as well as partners. In addition to pre-conception counselling, we offer services to those experiencing, or at risk of developing, perinatal depressive, anxiety and trauma or stress-related disorders. Support is also provided to expectant and new parents, and their partners, who have experienced a pregnancy related loss, e.g. stillbirth, miscarriage, or termination.
For more information, please download our GP Information Sheets for Gidget Houses in NSW, VIC, QLD or our national Start Talking telehealth service.
Our programs DO NOT provide crisis support. If your patient needs immediate help, please call triple zero (000), your local emergency department or Lifeline on 13 11 14. Alternatively, the PANDA National Perinatal Mental Health Helpline is available Mondays to Fridays (9.00am to 7.30pm AEST/AEDT) on 1300 726 306.
