Free helpline

Our FREE PANDAS Helpline is available from 10am-5pm Monday – Friday (excluding bank holidays). We also have a free, bookable call back service. Our dedicated volunteer team are on hand to offer support and advice, and can help to direct you to other organisations, if necessary.

Please call us or book a call if you’re struggling with helplessness, low mood, anxiety or have any concerns about your health during or beyond your pregnancy.

You can also speak to us and seek advice and support if you’re concerned about someone you know.

 *Please note that by using our services, you acknowledge and are in agreement that confidentially may be broken at any time for safeguarding reasons at our own discretion

Sometimes it might feel like no one understands what you’re going through, and coping with the everyday effects of pre and postnatal depression can be isolating and stressful. It can be difficult to come to terms with a diagnosis or make a treatment choice. Sometimes you simply need space and time to talk freely about how you’re feeling and all the options you might have.

Our helpline can get very busy. We answer as many calls as we can, but if you can’t get through, please do book a call using the system below. 

Unfortunately, we can’t return calls to withheld or anonymous numbers.

Bookable call service

We also have a free, bookable call service available. Select a suitable time below and one of our trained PANDAS volunteers will call you to give you the help and support that you need. When booking the system will ask for your name (first name only is fine or let us know what we should call you) and a brief summary of the support you need in the “notes” section. It will also ask for your email address and will confirm your call appointment with a follow up email (please do check your spam/junk folders if you don’t recieve a notification). 

“The person I spoke to was fantastic. Very friendly and approachable and gave lots of useful information as well as generally just being great to chat things through with. Have made positive steps to get the help my wife needs on the back of the call. Thank you so much!”
