Highlights/Quotes

"Most psychiatrists, doctors and allied health providers who work in this area believe that screening is an extremely important intervention. Antenatal and postnatal screening has been shown to be effective in idenitfying women with perinatal mood disorders. The earlier a diagnosis is made, the sooner help can be accessed and the faster the recovery. Mothers have such an important role to play in the family. A well mother is an asset to every family and the impact of a mother who is not well can be profound"
