A postnatal depression service was formed for the Scottish Borders in 2001 and funded by Crossreach. Over the nine years it was in operation the service evolved and expanded into a three day service offering individual and group therapy, art therapy and infant massage. Although very successful and widely used, funding was withdrawn early in 2010 and the existing service had to close.
Public concern and involvement by a number of individuals led to a new local charity being formed as PND Borders on 31st March 2010. Since then a dedicated group of volunteers has tackled the complexities of establishing a registered charitable company that is responsible for offering help to the mothers and families of the Scottish Borders who are affected by postnatal depression.
