Calm Mamas Club is proud to donate 10% from the sale of each event ticket sold and 5% from each shop purchase to the PANDAS Foundation – a charity that provides crucial support to parents who are suffering from pre and post natal mental illness.
To suffer from ill mental health is lonely, isolating and frightening. I know this because both myself and my mum have suffered from depression and anxiety, which for me peaked after the birth of my three beautiful babies.
To talk really does make a difference, but quite often it is difficult to open up and admit our true feelings to those closest to us. The PANDAS Foundation is a trusted support service for families, but they will also guide and inform family members, carers, friends or colleagues in need of help.
You can contact PANDAS via their telephone helpline – 0843 28 98 401- open daily 9am-8pm. Calls cost 5p per minute plus your phone company’s access charge.
Or you can email PANDAS directly on firstname.lastname@example.org where trained volunteers will be ready to reply to you within 24 hours, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
You can also search via their website for a local support group, where you can meet other like-minded parents who will share and understand your experiences. Please visit: www.pandasfoundation.org.uk
The PANDAS Foundation relies solely upon generous donations and the support of the public in order to run this incredible service.
