Riseup-PPD COST ACTION
(Research Network in Peripartum Depression Disorder)

Make Mothers Matter is part of the new EU research network on Peripartum Depression Disorder (PPD) where we are co-leading a working group on the dissemination of results.

The main goal of Riseup-PPD COST ACTION which started in April 2019 and will have a duration of 5 years, is to establish a Pan-European multidisciplinary network of researchers dedicated to the understanding of PPD, from its prevention and assessment to its treatment and global impact. Currently, 27 countries in the EU and beyond are part of this network including Albania, Israel, Turkey, Serbia, Bosnia, Norway, US and Brazil.

Riseup-PPD aims at filling gaps in PPD research, practice and social awareness by developing updated reviews, fostering research efforts on the standardisation of diagnostic criteria, the development of adequate screening tools and cost-effectiveness evaluation of prevention and treatment programs.

Finally, Riseup-PPD aims at developing a clinical protocol at EU level on how to treat PPD.

Eurofam-Net (The European Family Support Network)

MMM is part of a new Pan-European Family Support Network. The main aim and objective of the Action is to build collaborative pathways between researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, children, families, public and private agencies and society in general. This will create the necessary framework to inform on family policies and practices, with the underlying goal of ensuring children’s rights and families’ well-being.

The project covers 35 European countries in the EU and beyond. It started in March 2019 and will have a duration of 4 years until March 2023.

The European Family Network aims to contribute to high quality training of  future generations of European researchers in the field of family support, with an evidence-based and pluralistic approach.
