Understanding and Addressing Fathers’ Mental Health
Institute for Research on Poverty Webinar - Tova Walsh, Darryl Davidson, Sheehan Fisher, and Daniel Singley
Wednesday, April 27, 2022
Fathers, like mothers, are vulnerable to depression in the period surrounding the birth of a new baby, and this depression can have serious consequences for children and families. Presenters will draw on their research and practice experience to discuss the prevalence and presentation of depression and other mental health challenges among new fathers, and the impacts of fathers’ mental health on parenting, family relationships, and child development.
