Perinatal mental health: Psychosocial assessment, service utilisation and maternal outcomes.
This primary aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of a primary prevention, early intervention strategy (perinatal mental health assessment) on service utilisation and health outcomes of mothers in Australia, and to examine equity of access to this national population-based initiative. It will provide an evidence-base from which resistance to routine depression screening and psychosocial assessment in the perinatal period can be addressed, with possible benefits for health services, the mother, infant, family and community.
