Are you a mother who has experienced an episode of postpartum psychosis within the past ten years?

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital’s (MGH) Ammon-Pinizzotto Center for Women’s Mental Health are announcing the launch of a new research study called the MGH Postpartum Psychosis Registry (MGH P3). The study is recruiting women ages 18 or older who experienced a psychotic episode following childbirth within the past decade. Study participation involves a brief telephone interview and a DNA sample that can be sent by mail. The purpose of the study is to describe the phenomenology of postpartum psychosis and examine the genomic contribution to the risk of this disorder.

Those with interest or questions are encouraged to reach out to study staff by phone (617-643-7205) or email (mcollum@partners.org).
