The crucial first years

Each year 1 in 5 Australian women suffer from perinatal anxiety and depression. Up to 50% of these women are never identified and only 10% of women actively receive treatment. 1 in 10 new or expectant Aussie fathers also experience depression after the birth of a child. There is an urgent need for early intervention to reduce the immediate and long-term impact on not only women but on their children and families.
