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.
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.
Participation is entirely voluntary and all responses will be kept confidential. For more information, and a link to the survey, please click: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BDV9S9P
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. If you have any questions about this research, please don't hesitate to contact Irina Petrova (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Hi Cynthia, thank you for your support, I will do that! Unfortunately it has been difficult to get enough participants as the survey is somewhat time consuming, and time is so precious for anyone who's caring for a baby. We are hoping to get a few more people to complete the questionnaire in order to get meaningful results.
