Peach Tree Perinatal Wellness

Peach Tree is a Brisbane based charity that offers education and support to parents and expecting parents regarding emotional health and mental wellbeing. The peer support organisation, founded by two women with lived experience of perinatal mental illness, aims to reduce the stigma of parenthood and mental illness.

Vision and mission

Peach Tree's vision is emotionally and mentally strong and resilient families in pregnancy, birth, and beyond. As a tree supports its fruit, Peach Tree supports perinatal resilience and recovery with individuals and families through education, social action and by facilitating a passionate and caring community.

Peach Tree is a safe space for parents and families, building a village of support by promoting a positive culture around emotional wellbeing and parenthood.

How Peach Tree can help

Their Parent Wellbeing Centres accommodate clinical, allied health, peer support, and other community-based services to provide expecting parents and existing parents of children aged 0–5 years the treatment and psychosocial support they need to be emotionally and mentally well. The Centres also coordinate outreach and online support options.
