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.
