Emotional and mental health support for new and expecting dads

WHAT IS PERINATAL ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION?

Most people are surprised to know that around 1 in 20 men experience anxiety or depression during their partner’s pregnancy (antenatal) and up to 1 in 10 new dads struggle with anxiety or depression in the year following the birth of their baby (postnatal). It’s important to understand that perinatal anxiety and depression is a common and serious illness that can affect any man and his family, regardless of culture, age or background.
