Mental Health in Pregnancy

Mental Health screening

National guidelines recommend repeated screening for depression and anxiety for all women in the perinatal period. Routine screening in pregnancy is limited due to service, community and individual barriers. Background: Perinatal depression and perinatal anxiety affect up to 20% of all women.

Women of refugee background are at even greater risk for perinatal mental health conditions due to refugee experiences and resettlement stressors.

In response to these needs, we co-designed a screening program for women of refugee background with stakeholders from the maternity service, community-based refugee health and wellbeing service, non-government organisations and the community.

Learn more about our work and screening in other languages on the Centre of Perinatal Excellence (COPE) website.
