The Western Perinatal Support Group (WPSG) is a program coordinated by Communities for Children (CfC). The research explored the relationship between Communities for Children (CfC) programs delivered in Western Adelaide and some of the Social Determinants of Health (SDH) for the children and families who have used the service (Lynam, Loock et al. 2010, Solar and Irwin 2010). Communities for Children (CfC) provide prevention and early intervention approaches to improve outcomes for children (0-12 years old) and families who are considered to be at risk. These programs are sound from a theoretical perspective. The WPSG Post Natal Depression program incorporates fundamental theoretical aspects of care, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Perinatal Depression and Anxiety therapy, Attachment Theory, the Circle of Security Parenting, along with addressing the broader constructs of the Social Determinants of Health (SDH) such as education, access to services and aspects of service delivery (Lynam, Loock et al. 2010).
