A LOCAL counselling group has been praised for the support they give women and their families suffering from post-natal depression.
Aileen Campbell MSP, minister for children and young people, made the comments after visiting PND Borders in Galashiels.
“The visit gave me a real insight into the high quality service provided at what can be a very difficult time for mums and their families,” she said.
“I was hugely impressed by the professionalism of the PND Borders staff and volunteers.
“Their service is an excellent example of early intervention in practice and I wish them every success for the future.”
PND Borders provides therapy and support through counselling, art therapy and infant massage, as well as support to partners through a fathers’ group.
