Hi, a couple of useful groups for anyone who is or thinks they may be suffering from PND:

CedarHouse Support runs a support group at The Weir Link, 33 Weir Road, London SW12 0NU in Balham every Friday , term time only from 10.00am to 12.00pm. Details here

This is a really relaxed and friendly group, run by specialist PND Councillor Liz Wise. It also has a crèche service for children under school age so you can concentrate on the discussion while your kids are looked after. Very experienced crèche staff including a local supper nanny and, sometimes, me too. You simply self refer by e-mailing Liz.

There's a similar Council organised group at the Kathleen Low Settlement on Battersea High Street which also has a crèche for under 4s although you need a referral from your GP or health visitor to attend.

St George's hospital has been trialling a group called "Making the Most of Motherhood" which combines general discussion, some CBT, coping techniques and sessions with partners to help them understand. For details e-mail Karina Teeha at

Finally, Balham Community Centre offers counselling by qualified volunteer councillors and will set the price depending on your circumstances

Also feel free to post on this thread if you need a virtual shoulder to cry on. Hugs x
