Just Speak Up…about postnatal depression

Up to one in 10 Australian women will experience depression during pregnancy and this increases to one in seven in the postnatal period (the year following birth). Anxiety is thought to be even more common. An initiative of Beyond Blue, the Just Speak Up campaign aims to promote awareness of depression and anxiety in the antenatal and postnatal periods, reduce stigma and provide information about where to get help. By “speaking up” about emotional and mental health difficulties we can all play a vital role in supporting women and families going through a difficult time.  For more information visit http://justspeakup.com.au/
