A huge word of thanks goes to Nic Black from NB Media who has tirelessly worked with us on the recent website upgrades.
Last year the PNDSA were informed by a group of researchers at the University of Sussex that in a recent study, our website had been voted as one of the top 5 websites in the world regarding information on PND.
You can read more about this on our website or click here to read their report.
We continue to work at making the site as "user friendly" as possible and provide our visitors with as much information and as many useful platforms as we can.
Recent upgrades include adding information for "dads", articles on medication and the inclusion of video clips from television programmes discussing PND. Other media items we have included are magazine articles and PND related books which can now also be ordered from our website.
We pride ourselves in the interactive EDS (Edinburgh Depression Scale) test which can be completed online. Moms are able to do the EDS test and immediately receive an email back which reveals their score. Depending on the number scored, a personalised e-mail is then sent to each participant advising them on the next step to take and offering further help and support. We are at present receiving 3 to 8 completed EDS score cards per day.
As previously discussed, a "Donations" icon has been added which makes it easier for possible donors to donate money to our cause.
A link to our Face Book Group is also available and member numbers within the Group continue to grow steadily. This is a wonderful Social Media platform through which we can share news relating to our organisation and articles and talks relating to PND. It is also a safe place where mom's can share with and support each other. Why don't you consider joining us?
Statistics for the last three months reveal that the website receives between 1900 and 2500 "hits" per month. This means that every day an average of 70 people are finding our website.
The upgrades continue as we believe there is still much more we can do to improve and add value to the site so keep an eye out!
We will be adding a section soon for professionals with articles and information on PND. If you yourself or a colleague have written an article or know of articles which you think may be of benefit to your fellow health care professionals, please send us an email with the article attached or the recommendation. We value your input.
