This video talks about a co-research project where Amanda invited women to reflect on what they perceive to be some of the causes of perinatal depression. Interesting insights were shared. Important insider knowledge also emerged that highlighted some of the antidotes that they have discovered that have been successful in reducing or eliminating the presence of depression in their lives. The wisdom and insights women share continue to inspire, encourage and move Amanda. This video is dedicated to everyone she has had the privilege to work with.
Amanda works for the Perinatal Mental Health Service in Central Australia. She feels incredibly blessed to be working closely with women from a range of cultures, traditions and backgrounds.
Note from Amanda: early in the talk, I state that the treatment of choice for perinatal depression is therapy and/or therapy, what I meant to say was medication and/or therapy. Please forgive my slip up!
