Motherhood and depression study seeking participants

April 23, 2015 — 

A University of Manitoba researcher is seeking mothers to participate in a study examining postpartum depression.

Are you a mother who is feeling “blue” or depressed? If so, you are invited to participate in a research study about mothers’ perceptions of themselves and their relationships.

If you are:

– between the ages of 18 and 45
– have at least one child
– have a partner for at least one year

You may be eligible to participate in an ethics approved university study.


The Psychology/Sociology Research Ethics Board at the University of Manitoba has approved this research.

Participation will include a 15-minute phone interview and questionnaires that you will complete at home. The questionnaires may take up to 90 minutes to complete, and participants are asked to return them by postage-paid mail.

You will receive compensation of $20 for your participation.

This research is being conducted by Michelle Choch, M.A. and research supervisor Dr. Edward Johnson.

For more information please call 1-204-955-4881 or email motherhoodstudy2012 [at] gmail [dot] com.

Research at the University of Manitoba is partially supported by funding from the Government of Canada Research Support Fund.
