Online Screening Tool for Anxiety during Pregnancy (pregnancy-specific anxiety tool; PSAT)

The Pregnancy-Specific Anxiety Tool (PSAT) was developed in British Columbia, Canada, by Dr. Bayrampour and colleagues. The PSAT is a validated tool to screen for pregnancy-specific anxiety. The PSAT has 33 items and takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. This tool is in the public domain. We have created a web-based version of the PSAT.

In this research, we aim to understand the uptake of the web-based PSAT to improve its usability. Data for this study are collected anonymously. Any pregnant person, 19 years of age or older, living in British Columbia, and with access to the Internet is eligible to participate. People are not eligible to participate if they have self-harm or other harm ideations, psychosis, personality disorders, and bipolar disorders.

Participation involves:

  1. Completing the web-based PSAT and receiving the results of PSAT screening and a list of available mental health resources
  2. Providing feedback about this process and also responding to a few demographic and health information questions.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the following eligibility questions, you will receive the link to the study survey.
