Jeannette Milgrom has published widely in the areas of postnatal depression, infant mental health, evaluating parent-infant interventions and health psychology.
Her work has been recognized internationally, including an invitation to conduct workshops on postnatal depression by the National Institute of Health in Italy and ongoing invitations as a key speaker. She has also been active professionally and was Chair of the national College of Health Psychologists (Australian Psychological Society, 2004-08) and is a Fellow of the Australian Psychological Society. Over the past 25 years she has developed extensive psychological services at Austin Health and established a department that is held in high regard as a model for integrating clinical services, research and teaching in health psychology. In 2001 the Parent-Infant Research Institute was formed to conduct research, training and interventions.
Professor Milgrom was Chief Investigator and principal researcher of the Victorian component of a large collaborative national research grant: The National Postnatal Depression program (NPDP – Prevention and Early Intervention) funded by beyondblue. Up to 6,000 women in Victoria were screened for depression in pregnancy over three years and formed part of a large national database of up to 40,000 women. In addition, Professor Milgrom was Chief Investigator on a linked intervention to prepare new mothers for parenthood and pre-empt later attachment difficulties.
A major thrust of her work is to focus on child outcomes, disseminate findings widely and influence health policy.
