Postpartum Depression: Action Towards Causes and Treatment
PPD ACT™ aims to understand why some women get postpartum depression (PPD) and others do not.

PPD ACT is a research study developed by Postpartum Depression: Action Towards Causes and Treatment (PACT) Consortium, an international group of academic clinicians and scientists committed to understanding the interaction of genes and environment to predict which women are at risk of postpartum depression (PPD). The study aims to help researchers understand why some women suffer from PPD and postpartum psychosis (PPP) and others do not - critical knowledge that will improve detection, prevention and treatment of these conditions.

Join the PPD ACT study to help find the cure.

The Study

PPD ACT is designed to understand more about the genetic basis of postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis. Our goal is to learn about the reasons why some women get PPD or PPP and other women do not.

Help us reach our goal of 100,000 women from around the world participating in our study.
