Patient Eligibility Criteria
Gidget Foundation Australia is committed to providing the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
Our services are provided to people throughout the perinatal period: from conception up until the baby is 12 months old.
We offer support to those experiencing, or at risk of developing perinatal depression, anxiety, or perinatal related stress disorders.
Support is also provided to those people and their partners, who have experienced birth trauma or pregnancy related loss, e.g. stillbirth, miscarriage, or termination.
The Gidget team is dedicated to providing care that is safe, effective, and meaningful within the parameters of the resources available to us.
As a result, we are unable to accept referrals of people in crisis including those with:
– Current or enduring psychotic illness;
– Current serious suicidal, homicidal or infanticidal ideation;
– Current serious substance abuse that requires medical intervention;
– Current child protection and/or family violence or issues requiring Department of Community and Justice involvement
If we receive a referral that includes any of the above, Gidget Foundation Australia will notify the person’s GP who can refer to a more suitable service.
If you have any questions about who we can support, please contact us on 1300 851 758 or firstname.lastname@example.org
