MAPrc study probes dark side of perimenopause

Suicide rates are alarmingly high among middle-aged women, and under-recognised and under-treated perimenopausal depression could be the culprit, says Professor Jayashri Kulkarni, director and founder of the Monash Alfred Psychiatry centre (MAPrc), in an interview posted on the MAPrc site.

Professor Kulkarni discusses early research she and her team have conducted into the hormone therapy Tibolone for addressing depression, which was “very encouraging”.

MAPrc are currently recruiting participants for a study into this.
