PND Canterbury



Postnatal Depression Canterbury are a group of men and women who are passionate about helping parents with perinatal depression and related illnesses. We provide support groups, online communities as well as public education on PND.

We also work closely with GPs, midwives and other perinatal health services to make sure all mothers and fathers are able to access the help they need.

With the DHB services full, and only supporting mothers until their child is 12 months old, we provide a much needed service in the community.

We know firsthand that PND is often diagnosed later than that so offer support to parents who have children under 5.

We are also one of the only services in NZ to provide support for fathers.
