Postpartum psychosis, including voices, paranoia or extreme states experienced during or following pregnancy or birth, remains an extraordinarily under-researched and misunderstood topic. The voice of women with first hand experiences are particularly under-represented in research and psychosocial interventions or supports widely unavailable.
The primary goal of our postpartum psychosis initiative is to better understand the subjective experience, including social influences, treatment (or the lack thereof), and the nature and content of postpartum voices, visions, and distressing beliefs.
Right now we are soliciting general feedback regarding research ideas and priorities. We welcome direct contacts or participation in a survey designed to gather service user/experiencer views on what is most important.
