Screening and Assessment for PNDA

The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) is a commonly used screening questionnaire in the perinatal period with a standard scoring guide.

Gidget Foundation Australia supports those experiencing mild to moderate perinatal depression and anxiety. If your patient answers 1 or more on Q10 relating to self-harm and this is current, or has an  EDPS score of higher than 14,  we ask for careful consideration as to whether they require a more acute service. We encourage you to contact our Program Clinician on 1300 851 758 to discuss the individual needs of your patient and their suitability for our service.

The Depression, Anxiety and Stress scale 21 items (DASS 21) is a set of three self-report scales designed to measure the emotional states of depression, anxiety, and stress. A scoring guide is also available.

Gidget Foundation Australia supports those experiencing mild to moderate perinatal depression and anxiety. If your patient’s score on the DASS 21 is ‘severe’ (as defined in the scoring guide), we ask for careful consideration as to whether they should be referred to a more acute service.  We encourage you to contact our Program Clinician on 1300 851 758 to discuss the individual needs of your patient and their suitability for our service.
