New 24/7 App Supporting Parents Experiencing Perinatal Anxiety and Depression
Becoming a parent is an exciting and yet an anxious time. Currently one in 5 new mums and 1 in 10 new dads are affected by perinatal depression and anxiety. Which no doubt has been exacerbated by this year’s pandemic and lockdowns.
With Perinatal Mental Health Week just around the corner, the NSW government has funded a pilot program which provides 24/7 support through an app. The app launched yesterday and is created in collaboration with Gidget Foundation Australia and Sonder. We spoke with Arabella Gibson the CEO of Gidget Foundation Australia.
To download the app, install the Sonder app and search the keyword ‘Gidget’.
