Postpartum depression and geographic location

A study by researchers at CAMH and  Women’s College Hospital, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, has found that women in cities are at higher risk of postpartum depression.

Dr. Lori Ross, CAMH Scientist and Senior Investigator on the study  found  women in urban areas are less likely to receive the same levels of social support during pregnancy as women in more rural areas.

Media coverage of the study (including a video) can be viewed here​.
