Plunket Parenting Podcast

Parental Mental Health

October 25, 2017

This week we're talking about Parental Mental Health, a big topic that affects a lot of us.

Tune in to hear our hosts Kate and Mamae learn more about maternal and paternal mental health as they chat to Jacquie (loveliest woman alive) from Plunket's post-natal adjustment programme and Dr Siale from Homecare Medical's Depression Helpline about what post-natal depression is, the signs, and how to get support; and also the fabulous Jacqui (it's a double Jacqui podcast this week!), mum of three and founder of Bellyful, about how she turned her struggle with post-natal anxiety and depression into a beautiful support network for women and families all across Aotearoa.

Please note that suicide is discussed as part of this podcast. If you would like to reach out to talk to someone about how you're feeling, or if you're concerned about a loved one, you can call or txt 1737 at any time to talk to a trained counsellor for free - or our very own PlunketLine on 0800 933 922. This is not a journey you have to go through alone.
