ABOUT 45 families took part in a Banksia Grove pram push to raise awareness about postnatal depression.

The neighbourhood walk coincided with Perinatal Depression and Anxiety Awareness Week.

Residents were urged to take part in the event organised by the Banskia Grove Community Centre team in partnership with the Child and Parent Centre at Neerabup Primary School, which hosted a morning tea.

Ngala arranged a coffee vendor and treated the adults to free coffee. Participants also received a beyondblue tote bag and information about support services.

Organisers said a mix of grandparents, mums and dads with their children attended the walk.
