About Us

PND Borders is centrally based in Galashiels and our Service is available to anyone living in the Scottish Borders. Our doors opened in March 2011.

 

Our vision is to have a sustainable, fully functional service that can reach out to all families affected by postnatal depression in the Borders. We aim to support families through individual counselling or art therapy, group art therapy, infant massage, parent/child support and support for fathers. All our aspects of our Service are complimented by our crèche facility. Our range of therapeutic services is currently available all day Wednesday and Thursday morning.

 

Our therapeutic staff team are all professionally qualified and experienced in the field of mental health. Our welcoming and well-equipped crèche is managed by our crèche co-ordinator and a team of experienced crèche volunteers. All our staff members are Enhance Disclosure checked.

 

The Service is overseen by a Board of Directors who come from a medical/psychiatric, social welfare or therapeutic background.

 

PND Borders is a Scottish Charity (no. SC041376) and a Company Limited by Guarantee. Our service is not part of the NHS or Social Services so our funding is sourced from a variety of national trusts and foundations as well as from local charities, churches, individuals and organisations. We are very grateful for donations we have received so far this year from The Henry Smith Charity, Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland, Volant Trust and Communities & Families Fund.
