Postnatal Depression in New Fathers

Did you know men can get postnatal depression too? In fact, 1 in 10 new Dads develop postnatal depression, but very few of them feel comfortable enough to seek help.

June 18th is International Fathers’ Mental Health Day, and as a result the Centre for Perinatal Psychology is encouraging dads who are struggling to come forward and seek help.

If you or someone you know is experiencing postnatal depression contact your GP, visit The Centre For Perinatal Psychology’s website, or call Lifeline on 13 11 14
