Welcome to PRE-D!
Welcome to the study on Preventing Perinatal Depression (PRE-D): Developing Tools and Interventions!
We appreciate your interest in this project and look forward to helping you determine if participation
is right for you. This study aims to assist women who are attempting to get pregnant or in early pregnancy
and have been depressed in the past.
We are conducting this study because women with a history of depression
have an increased chance of getting depressed again, particularly during pregnancy. Women need useful and
convenient ways to detect, monitor, and prevent depressive symptoms as they try to get pregnant, during
pregnancy, and after the baby is born. To help address these needs, we have developed a new Clinician
Assisted Internet Monitoring (C-AIM) system to help women recognize the symptoms of depression.
Are you a woman between the ages of 18 and 45, who is well now, but has been
depressed in the past? Are you trying to become pregnant in the next year
or in early pregnancy? If you answered yes to these questions and would
like to see if you qualify to participate in this study or wish to learn
more about it, please contact the Psychosocial Research and Depression
Clinic in the Department of Psychiatry at The University of Texas Southwestern
Medical Center at (214)-648-5351
