📣 I'd like to introduce you to another face beh 📣 I'd like to introduce you to another face behind team PANDAS! 📣

This time we are meeting the lovely Georgia ❤️

Over to you Georgia...

What's your name? Georgia 

What made you want to get involved with PANDAS? 
When I was diagnosed with postpartum depression and anxiety I found out that we don't focus on maternal/paternal mental health as much. I tried to educate myself more around mental health and I came across PANDAS who were very helpful and supportive to me. I want to listen and support the best I can others who might be experiencing the same and let them know that 'I am here and you are not alone'

What's your role within PANDAS? 
Email support volunteer
 
What's your favourite thing about volunteering for PANDAS? 
Supporting and listening to parents with no judgment and seeing people feeling that they can receive the best and right support they deserve.

Georgia, thank you SO MUCH for all you do for PANDAS. We are so grateful to you and appreciate you very much ❤️ 👏 🙏
