Postnatal depression clinical trial

Are you experiencing postnatal depression?

About this study

The Parent-Infant Research Institute at Austin Health is conducting a study to evaluate a new internet-based treatment program targeted for women experiencing postnatal depression. If you feel you are struggling to cope or experiencing postnatal depression, this program may be of benefit to you.

Each participant receives a phone assessment with a psychologist to discuss treatment options and to link you in with support services.

Participants will be randomly allocated to receive either the internet-based treatment (MumMoodBooster) program, or routine primary care.

Participants will be asked to complete questionnaires and phone assessments at three time points over three months.

Each participant will be reimbursed for their time completing the questionnaires and for a telephone assessment interview ($35 in total).

The internet-based treatment is free of charge.
