Join us for our Facebook Live this Wednesday to learn about maternal mental healthcare in the digital age

November 13, 2017

Digital Health Week (November 13-19) is an annual recognition of how digital health is transforming the delivery of care across Canada. To celebrate, we’re hosting another Facebook Live on Wednesday, November 15 at 12 p.m. with Dr. Simone Vigod, psychiatrist and lead, Reproductive Life Stages Program at Women’s College Hospital (WCH).

Dr. Vigod will be sharing how she and her team are using digital health in innovative ways to provide care for and perform research on maternal mental health issues, as well as answering some of your questions. One of these programs is Mother Matters, an online support group for women with mood or adjustment challenges following the birth of their baby. Dr. Vigod is also leading the Canadian expansion of PPD ACT, an iOS Research Kit app that’s being used to recruit participants for an international study on postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis.
