Access from EThOS:
Postnatal Depression (PND) can inflict profound psychological suffering on new mothers, and if not treated, this disorder can also cause significant disabling complications for the entire family (National Institute for Clinical Excellence for Antenatal & Postnatal Mental Health- NICE for APMH, 2007). NICE for APMH guidelines, (2007), suggested that in order to assess and treat PND accurately, it is unperative to know the factors associated with the development and maintenance of the illness. However, almost all of the theoretical perspectives, screening, assessment tools and interventions for PND to date had been derived from western populations, and little research had been undertaken with Asian mothers.
