As part of a group of leading perinatal depression experts, we have come together to provide additional tools to help GPs manage patients with perinatal depression.

Led by the Parent-Infant Research Institute (PIRI), the Perinatal Depression e-Consortium (PDeC) includes Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Australia (PANDA), Monash University, Queensland University of Technology and Jean Hailes for Women’s Health..

We now have available a highly effective online treatment for depressed perinatal women experiencing perinatal depression and anxiety for use in general practice. These free, evidence-based programs are available free to all Australian women (MumMoodBooster and Mum2BMoodBooster), funded by the Australian Department of Health.

In addition, a clinician portal enables GPs to directly refer patients to the MumMoodBooster  programs and track their progress.

MumMoodBooster is FREE and is supported, via MumSpace, by the Australian Government.

MumMoodBooster Programs

MumMoodBooster and Mum2BMoodBooster are evidence-based e-treatments designed to help women anywhere in Australia who are experiencing depression either during pregnancy (antenatal depression) or after the birth of their baby (postnatal depression).

Our treatment programs are based on best practice psychological treatment. They are designed to deliver the benefits of face-to-face cognitive-behavioural treatment without needing to leave home.

These online treatments have been developed by the Parent-Infant Research Institute and have a strong evidence base and feature:

  • Six interactive CBT sessions
  • Optional weekly phone coach (For mums with more severe symptoms)
  • Extensively trialled in Australia and effective for depression meeting diagnostic criteria

MumMoodBooster Clinician Portal

The MumMoodBooster Clinician Portal is now  available to GPs as part of the Commonwealth funded MumSpace initiative. The Mum2BMoodBooster Clinician Portal is currently undergoing testing for release later in 2021.

The customised clinician portal  enables GPs to directly refer patients to MumMoodBooster and track their progress. The treatment programs provide free, effective, evidence-based online treatment programs for mild to moderately-severe antenatal and postnatal anxiety and depression.

GPs are able to log in and immediately refer patients to the program using the referral form, which contains a unique code to be used for all your patients. Once a patient registers for the program using their unique code, she can begin the MumMoodBooster treatment program. This same code can be given to any of a GP’s patients and so that there is no need to register again.

Whilst we cannot provide crisis support, email alerts are sent if depression monitoring indicates your patient is having a significantly difficult time (experiencing suicidal ideation or escalating depression). The email alert will advise her to speak to a health professional or contact a telephone support service, and that the program may not be sufficient for her needs. A woman’s GP will also be notified for information.

By using their own username and password which a GP creates  at registration, they are able to login to their Clinician Portal account at any time, and review a patient’s progress, where they will be listed by nameGPs also receive e-mail notifications when progress reports are available (at 1, 4 and 8 weeks). The first report will contain screening (The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale), psychological assessment results (PHQ-9 Patient Health Questionnaire), DSM-5 Cross-sectional symptom measure), and her program usage details.

Whilst a GP may have already screened a patient, MumMoodBooster offers an additional EPDS screening assessment.
