iPhone App Sad Scales includes Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale


(Note: This is post does not imply an endorsement or recommendation of this particular application. As with any evaluation, please be sure to see a professional for final diagnosis)

This morning I discovered an iPhone app which includes the Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Scale along with three other depression scales.

While I have not used it myself, it seems like a really neat concept considering how prevalant iPhones are in our society today. Chances are many new moms either have an iPhone or know someone who does. What’s really cool about this app is that it stores the last 30 entries so you can take the results straight to your doctor.

Speaking of doctors – if you’re a professional, you too can get this app for your iPhone as well so if you’re faced with a new mom who doesn’t seem to be doing very well, you can screen on the spot without having to hunt down a screening tool in your office.

Pretty cool, huh?

You can read more about the app here and no, I’m not getting a cut by referring you to the store – it’s just the best description I found of the application.
