    Default Participants Needed! All women welcome!

    I am currently completing my Masters in Psychology(Clinical) at the University of New England. As part of this program I am conducting research that aims to investigate the relationship between perfectionism and Postnatal Depression (PND), as well as the relationship between expectations of the mother and the development of PND.

    Postnatal Depression is a very common, but often untreated and unrecognised mental health condition. Its impact can be devastating and far reaching. Currently our understanding of PND is limited, so the need for further research is paramount.

    I am conducting a questionnaire that I hope will add to the existing research and further extend our knowledge of PND. You do not have to have suffered PND or have had children to complete this questionnaire.

    Participants will be required to complete an on-line questionnaire that should take no longer than approximately 15 minutes. The questionnaire will ask questions around the following participant information;demographics, types and levels of perfectionism as well as their opinion regarding perinatal issues. Participation is anonymous and completely voluntary.

    The information provided by completing the questionnaire will be invaluable in developing our understanding of PND.

    Specifically we are seeking participation from women who have had a child within the last 12 months, women who have children over 12 months of age,as well as women who have not had children.

    This research has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee ofthe University of New England (Approval No. HE12-103, valid to 30/05/2013).

    Please click this link to complete the questionnaire:


    Many thanks for taking the time to complete this survey!
