Investing in the earliest years to build a brighter future

The crucial first years

Each year 1 in 5 Australian women suffer from perinatal anxiety and depression. Up to 50% of these women are never identified and only 10% of women actively receive treatment. There is an urgent need for early intervention to reduce the immediate and long-term impact on not only women but on their children and families.

PIRIs commitment

PIRI is a not-for-profit research institute which conducts international research and develops rigorously evaluated early intervention programs that enhance perinatal mental health and improve early parent-infant relationships (0-2 years). We remain absolutely committed to working with families and health professionals to ensure better outcomes and a bright future.

What we have achieved

PIRI’s 20-years of ground-breaking work has resulted in a suite of evidence-based programs that have and will continue to provide support to thousands of Australian mothers, children and their families.

This is PIRI’s Mission.
