Depression and anxiety are the most common mental health issues experienced by women during the pregnancy and post-partum (‘the perinatal’) period. However, there remains a huge gap in the screening, diagnosis and access to timely care in Switzerland and worldwide. To bridge this gap, Haplomind is creating a digital solution that can accurately screen, create easy access to professional care and connect the women with the healthcare professionals in a secure, citizen controlled way. The novelty of their method lies in the use of smartphone-delivered voice biomarkers to detect depression more accurately in perinatal women than self-reported questionnaires and the ability to quickly treat depression.
