PPD Research Group Seeks Study Participants

Received the following update from Hiltrud Dawson who is Health Promotion Consultant for Best Start Resource Center, a reputable Canadian organization that has long targeted postpartum depression. You do not need to live in Ontario to participate!

On behalf of Lori Ross:

“Are you dealing with stress? Do you struggle with your emotional health? We need YOU to fill out this survey!”

The “Pathways Study” is a community-based research project that seeks to understand women’s* experiences with depression as well as their use of mental health services.

We are recruiting 900 participants of all sexual orientations, abilities and ethno-racial backgrounds to share their experiences by filling out a confidential and anonymous online survey that takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes to complete. About 40 of the 900 online participants will also be asked to do a one hour semi-structured interview with a member of the Pathways Research Team to discuss their experiences.

We are especially trying to reach women who experience multiple stressors associated with their race, class, gender, sexual orientation and/or gender identity. You will be compensated for your participation with a President’s Choice gift certificate, or a donation to charity.

A primary goal of this project is to find out what happens when people seek help or treatment for their emotional or mental health. Our goal is to help make changes to mental health services.
