Built on evidence of what works.
The structure and content of Canopie’s program comes from robust evidence and hundreds of interviews with expecting and new moms, experts, and health professionals.
Proven to work
Results from an initial randomized controlled trial indicate significant clinical improvements after only 2 weeks of engagement in the Canopie program.
79% of participants with symptoms of depression in the treatment group experienced a change in their EPDS depression score of greater than 4, surpassing the reliable change index.
The program was most effective for mothers with moderate to severe symptoms of depression.
EFFECTIVE ACCESSIBLE CARE
Our study showed a treatment effect size hedges (g) of 0.68 (p=.00015, n=100), compared to in-person CBT effect size 0.642.
There was no difference in effect size across income, culture, race, or age.
Canopie's program uniquely integrates clinically validated techniques that are recommended by the experts with techniques focused on your body and mind.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
CBT has been proven to have a large effect in reducing depression for women in the perinatal period. Studies show web-based CBT can be as effective as face-to-face CBT.
IPT is recommended for preventing perinatal depression, and focuses on relationships and communication, which are common struggles for many new mothers.
CFT has been shown to be particularly effective in reducing self-criticism and shame in new mothers. It shifts self-blame to an understanding the impact of society and evolution on parenting.
Over 50 randomized control trials have demonstrated significant treatment effects from therapeutic techniques such as CBT, IPT and CFT delivered in a similar way to the Canopie program, both guided self-help and pure self-help, including the below.
