Reproductive Mental Health

Reproductive Mental Health studies

Approximately 1 in 10 Canadian new mothers are diagnosed with postpartum depression (PPD). There is a need to learn from the experiences of women who have faced PPD in order to develop an online intervention delivered via mobile app and accessible by all women. Participation in a single 2-hour focus group will help to foster discussions based on open-ended questions, personal experiences, and the responses of other participants. These sessions also provide an opportunity to learn from and interact with other women who have experienced PPD, in addition to providing crucial input for the creation of a tool which will benefit other women experiencing PPD.

Entry Criteria:

  •  18 years or older
  • able to read, write, and speak conversational English
  • female by birth (cis-female)
  • have had a diagnosis of postpartum depression in the past five years, but are not currently diagnosed as having postpartum depression
