Research: Online Parenting Forums and Social Support for Postnatal Depression
Online Parenting Forums and Social Support for Postnatal Depression (PND)
Hi all, you are invited to participate in research exploring the use of online communities for parents and their role in supporting women with PND. The aim of the study is to assess satisfaction with social support received through the forums by women with and without PND.
Participation will involve completing an online survey that will take approximately 20-30 minutes. All survey respondents will have a chance of winning one of four $50 Babies'R'Us e-gift vouchers. The survey will be open until September 13, 2013.
We are looking for your participation, if you:
Are a woman over 18 years of age;
Are a mother of a child who is 1 year old or younger;
Are a regular user of online parenting communities.
The data collected will be used for a research thesis by a Master of Clinical Psychology student at the University of Wollongong, Australia. This research has been reviewed by the University of Wollongong Human Research Ethics Committee under Ethics number HE12/190.
