Want to be part of the largest ever international study of PND and postpartum psychosis? I know I do (especially as I am a researcher!)
The Queensland Brain Institute and Postpartum Depression and Action Towards Causes and Treatment (PACT) have introduced a free app to launch the largest ever international study of postnatal depression (PND) and postnatal psychosis. Available on iPhone and iPads (and desktop), the app aims to help researchers understand why some women get PND or postnatal psychosis and others don’t. The results will then assist in developing more effective treatments and help new mums struggling with PND or postnatal psychosis.
The Australian arm of the PPD ACT study is designed to collect more detailed information about health and lifestyle as part of our “Genetics of Risk and Response to Treatment of Depression” study.
Mothers must be over 18 to participate and have struggled with either PND or postnatal psychosis at some stage in their life. Those currently being treated and those who were affected years ago all qualify to take part in the study.
