Canopie can be provided to all new parents as a prevention and early intervention approach. This supports the hundreds of thousands of mothers with mild to moderate depression who currently wait months to receive treatment.


Anxiety and depression are the most common complications of pregnancy and childbirth but specialist perinatal mental health services can only currently support the most severe cases.
