Post-adoption Depression - Adoption UK Factsheet

Some prospective adopters can suffer symptoms of depression in the early placement period and at significant other times after an adoption. The aim of this factsheet is to raise awareness of an issue that is often unrecognised, so as to benefit prospective adopters, adopters, adoption professionals and those involved both directly and indirectly with adoption. It will describe the condition and provide information (based on recent research) on possible contributors and triggers. Hopefully this will help identify depression, minimise its effects and access available support. It must be stressed that this factsheet is for information purposes only and should not be used in place of seeking medical advice and professional support.
