Australia’s new one-stop website supporting the mental health and emotional
wellbeing of pregnant women, new mums and their families.
MumSpace is designed to connect you quickly with the level of support you need, from advice and support in the transition to parenthood, to effective online treatment programs for perinatal depression and anxiety. The resources on MumSpace will help you ‘step-up’ to whichever level of support suits you best. MumSpace is also a resource for your healthcare professional.
MumSpace is brought to you by the Perinatal Depression e-Consortium (PDeC), led by the Parent-Infant Research Institute (PIRI) in partnership with Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Australia (PANDA), Monash University, Jean Hailes for Women’s Health and Queensland University of Technology.
The online resources and apps available through MumSpace are evidence-based and have been evaluated by the PDeC partners in research studies conducted here in Australia.
The mental health information in our resources is provided by appropriately trained and qualified professionals, who are members of the Perinatal Depression e-consortium (PDeC).
Led by PIRI, the five consortium partners are leading experts in perinatal mental health in Australia. PDeC has editorial control of MumSpace website content development and review. Professor Jeannette Milgrom (firstname.lastname@example.org) is responsible for editorial oversight of MumSpace.
