Postnatal Depression & Anxiety Group - VIRTUAL - hosted by Nepean - 27th April

About this event

 
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all PARENTING Groups will now be held via Telehealth free of charge.

We are making it even easier for parents to join one of our Parenting Group programs, now providing these as "virtual groups" via Telehealth. We use secure video-conferencing platforms, similar to the experience many of you have had using Facetime and other platforms to keep in contact with family and friends. You will have one of Tresillian's experienced clinical staff hosting the group.

Once you have booked we will contact you with all the details and easy-to-follow instructions for linking into the video-conference from your home. See below for more information on this group program.

An 8 week therapeutic group for the treatment of peri natal depression and anxiety. The group is closed and will have 6-8 mothers .

Therapeutic cognitive based interventions and strategies will assist participants to improve mood; reduce anxiety; further manage adjustment to parenting; improve communication with others including partners; explore expectations and experiences of parenting for oneself and within a group of mothers; explore and increase attachment and connectedness to their infant; and form a support group that will be able to continue after the course has completed.

Midway through the eight week course a partners evening will be organized to allow partners a virtual  meet and also discuss their experiences of parenting.

A reunion is organized for attending mothers approximately 3 weeks after the conclusion of the group to further monitor progress and change.

The group is closed so participants will always be virtual with the same people and a sense of comfort and safety can be experienced.

Those interested in attending can self refer or can be referred by any health professional e.g. GP, Allied Health etc. Acceptance into the group is dependent upon interview by one of the facilitators either by telephone or face to face at Tresillian to ensure the group is appropriate for the individual’s needs.
