  • MH awareness week

    Next week is mental health awareness week. I have a history of very bad anxiety and bouts of depression, and have recently been diagnosed with PND. Is anyone else out there with PND? You don't really see many people talking about it, even mothers. It's a shame really but I'm hoping next week it gets talked about a lot.

  • Hi Kimmy! Could you tell us a little more about PND? I looked it up but I'm finding several different things it could be.

    I have certainly dealt with situational depression and anxiety.

    • Are you talking about post natal depression?


      • Yes I meant postnatal depression, should've said the full name instead of the acronym I've read somewhere that Dr's usually refer parents suffering from it to CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and would actually like to learn more about it because I'm thinking of trying it out. Have any of you had CBT before? I wanted to talk about it because I feel quite alone with it, not many people talk about it..


        • Mental health problems are nothing to be ashamed of. It takes more strength and courage to admit to having a mental health problem than pushing it aside and pretending nothing is wrong. Everyone has had issues: not always severe but issues nonetheless. Anxiety and depression are very common. Mental health isn't the taboo it was. Treatment is possible and nothing to be afraid of. Those old images of mental hospitals don't hold true today. Anyhow, anyone could get ill.
