Postpartum depression has an estimated prevalence rate of about 24.4% among Indian women. Yet, most cases go undetected due to lack of awareness and stigma. BHappy is an app and paper-based tool used by health providers to screen mothers for postpartum depression. Based on a mother's responses, BHappy will categorize the mother as "healthy", "at risk", or "in need of immediate attention", after which mothers and their families will be connected to appropriate clinical assistance.
