New Dads – need some support?

Posted by: helenbell6 - Posted on:

Research tells us that 1 in 10 fathers experience anxiety or depression after the birth of a child – it is actually believed to be of a similar level to that of mothers.

TalkPlus are co-facilitating a new course with the health visiting team aimed at improving new father’s mental health, recognising their need for more support, and developing a peer support group that can continue beyond the end of the course.

The course will cover:

– The role of a father and the challenges that this brings

– Baby development and how to be involved

– Anxiety and depression after a baby with tools and techniques on how to manage

– Relationship changes

This is for anyone with a baby under the age of 12 months who is struggling with their mental health and needs support.
