The Postnatal Depression Intervention Program is a screening program looking at postnatal depression in newly delivered mothers at KK Hospital in Singapore. The primary objective of the paper is to evaluate the outcomes based on changes in scores from baseline to end of intervention with reference to depressive symptoms, using the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale and overall functioning based on the Global Assessment of Functioning. These changes were found to be statistically significant. We also described the demographics of the 10-year cohort with majority being married, Chinese, aged between 25 and 34 years old and received at least tertiary education.
