The White Cloud Foundation proudly partners with QUT Health Clinics to offer a multidisciplinary clinical pilot program, providing early intervention for perinatal and postnatal depression. The innovative program provides new and expecting mothers with no cost access to a team of clinicians, including the services of a mental health nurse, exercise physiologist, psychologist, social worker and dietitian.
The aim of the program is to reduce risk factors and thereby prevent the development of a clinical disorder by helping women to identify and better manage psychological, social, dietary and physical fitness challenges that are potentially compromising their ability to respond to the demands of motherhood.
Additionally one of the objectives of this project was to develop a manual that describes the interventions so as to assist future service providers wishing to adopt this model. The manual assists clinicians to understand the rationale, approach and procedures involved in delivering the service.
