Hello ladies of Mighty Mackay.
I have been wanting to start a support group for women with postnatal depression (PND) for a while now, and have been in dialogue with various community services to talk about existent support for women with PND, renting facilities, etc. I have a social work background and some training in group work. I have personally also experienced both antenatal and postnatal depression.
I just thought I would reach out to Mackay women who have experience with PND (past or currently) and hear if anyone would be interested in attending.
The group would be free, open (meaning that participants could start and stop attending at any time) and take place in child friendly facilities. The group would be semi-structured, meaning that we would cover various discussion topics, but also allow for general chat and one-on-one conversations.
If anyone would be interested, I would love to hear from you, either in here or through a PM. I would also love suggestions about what you would find helpful and less helpful in such a group.
