Mental Health Checklist for Mums

The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) is a screening questionnaire and not a medical diagnosis. The results will provide you with an indication of your symptoms only.

We recommend that you complete the checklist with your GP or another health professional. If you use this tool by yourself, speak to your GP or another health professional if your score is higher than 10 or if you are experiencing thoughts of harming yourself.

If something doesn’t seem right, call the PANDA Helpline on 1300 726 306 or your health care provider regardless of your score.
