For those seeking support there is also a Facebook group “Support in Postnatal Depression (Malta)” where everybody is invited to share their experience, be it as a sufferer or as a friend, relative of someone who has passed through Post Natal Depression, or perhaps passing
through it right now. Professionals and others are also welcome. Indeed, it is open to all those who care.
As in all self-help groups, sharing experiences will greatly help in creating support and lead towards understanding and healing.
