MumSpace

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.

MumSpace.com.au is 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 pregnant women, new mums and their families quickly with the level of support they need, from advice and support in the transition to parenthood, to effective online treatment programs for perinatal depression and anxiety. The resources on MumSpace help users to ‘step-up’ to whichever level of support suits them best. MumSpace is also a resource for your healthcare professional.

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.

PDeC is led by the Parent-Infant Research Institute (PIRI). PIRI is a vigorous and innovative Australian research institute committed to supporting all parents and their babies (conception to 2 years), including those with vulnerabilities, to have the best possible start to life. PIRI makes a unique contribution to early intervention in Australia by combining basic research and clinical expertise to address perinatal depression and other difficulties facing parents and infants. PIRI is a part of Austin Life Sciences, based at Austin Health, Melbourne.
