Across Australia, 1 in 5 new mums and 1 in 10 new dads suffer from perinatal depression and anxiety (PNDA). That’s almost 100,000 expecting and new parents each year.
To coincide with World Maternal Mental Health Day on May 2nd, not-for-profit organisation Gidget Foundation Australia is launching the Little Helper Bunny Books: bedtime stories for little ones which double as parental self-help books, to tackle common symptoms of PNDA.
The books have been created by Naked as part of an ongoing partnership with Gidget Foundation to bring the often-silent issue of perinatal depression and anxiety into the open.
The Little Helper Bunny Books are a collection of four titles, beautifully illustrated and carefully written to deliver immersive content for little ones that puts proven psychological strategies between the lines for the reader. Each book is accompanied with its own online film, which explores the symptoms and strategies behind the book in more detail.
