PMD Partners’ Study

The PMD Partners’ Study is recruiting partners of women who have experienced a mental health problem in the year after having a baby.  For most families, having a baby is a happy occasion.  However, a small number of women will experience a mental health problem such as anxiety, postnatal depression and/or postpartum psychosis that may or may not have received a clinical diagnosis.  Often the woman’s partner can play an important role during this time, but we currently have little knowledge about what the partner experiences.  This study aims to provide insights into understanding partners’ experiences in order to provide the support they need during this time.  This study is being undertaken by Jill Atkinson, a PhD student at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin and has been funded by the Health Research Board.  If you would like to participate, or would like more information, please contact Jill on Tel: 087 0629892  |  Email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
