Thank you very much for your consideration.

Women who have experienced a difficult pregnancy or who were considered high risk (with or without prescribed bed rest) are at increased risk of developing post partum mood disorders. The purpose of this study is to determine whether or not post partum mood disorders (i.e post partum depression) can be effectively screened for and interventions provided for women over the internet. The full study will commence in the spring, but researchers at Case Western Reserve University, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing are now in the beginning phases of gathering study participants. If you fit the above criteria, please consider participating in this study. The information obtained will help the researchers better prepare the study and in the long run, obtain much needed information to help clinicians better screen for and treat post partum mood disorders.
