Anxiety, depression and other mental health issues are common in pregancy and for new parents and are not always recognised or talked about.
A market stall focussed on supporting families to access information about perinatal mental health issues will be held in Perinatal Depression and Anxiety Week. Mental health clincians and community partners will be available to discuss supports for pregnant women and families with young children.
Clinians will be offering mental health “check up from the neck up” screening in conjuction with the NSW Mental Health Commission and support options and information will be availible. Children can be entertained while you chat .
