About the Role
PANDA’s Community Champions are people inspired to help us raise awareness of perinatal anxiety, depression and postnatal psychosis by speaking out in their local communities and sharing their unique stories as well as practical information.
Who can be a PANDA Community Champion?
Women and men with a personal experience of perinatal mental illness can become a Community Champion. What we mean by personal experience is that you have experienced perinatal anxiety and/or depression or postnatal psychosis or supported a partner or family member through their experience.
Just as perinatal mental illness has many faces, so do our team of Community Champions. There really is something for everyone. The will to help, along with computer access, is all you need
What do PANDA Community Champions do?
Community Champions conduct awareness raising activities in their local communities in order to promote the importance of early identification and treatment, PANDA’s services and reduce the stigma associated with perinatal mental illness.
Community Champions can choose from a wide range of activities to suit their personal interests, skills and availability which can range from distributing PANDA resources to hosting awareness raising fundraising events to support PANDA. The program is super flexible so you get to choose the extent of your involvement with activities such as:
– Community awareness
– Sharing your story
– Community fundraising
– Writing and research
