I felt like less than a shadow in the room: the experiences and needs of new fathers

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Given the prevalence of fathers who experience anxiety and depression during their partner’s pregnancy and following the birth of their baby, and the tendency of this population to be less likely to seek out help for these issue and/or be treated as secondary figures, new attitudes and systems are needed to improve the mental health and wellbeing of new fathers.
