Research on Postpartum Depression by University Student: Quick EPDS Survey

Posted Dec 03 2009 4:51pm
The following is a letter I received from a University student.  If you are currently suffering from or recovering from a PMD, please take a minute to take this survey (it's actually just the Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Scale plus a few risk factors using Survey Monkey).

My name is Erin Listman and I am a student at Northern Virginia Community College. I will be graduating this semester, and will begin my major of Psychology at George Mason in January. As of now, I am taking a class on research methods, and have chosen postpartum depression as my area of study. I have chosen to conduct a survey examining factors of women's lives that may contribute to PPD, such as socioeconomic status, paternal satisfaction/support, number of previous births, age, and mental health history (previous diagnosis of anxiety/depression). This survey will be completely anonymous. I am asking for your support group's participation in this study. Below is a link to the survey, which includes the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (first 10 questions), and the remaining questions pertaining to the above factors.

Thank you,

Erin Listman
