Help us campaign for the better inclusion of dads within perinatal mental health services.
Around 20% of mothers and 10% of fathers will suffer from postnatal depression (Fatherhood Institute, 2017). Based on these figures, every year upwards of 5,000 new fathers in Scotland will experience postnatal depression.
Fathers Network Scotland’s research over many years is clear: fathers often feel excluded from perinatal services, and perinatal services still tell us that they’re not sure how to get dads involved. Despite the evidence, paternal perinatal mental health-focused work has not yet been specifically supported or prioritised within the three-year investment into third sector Perinatal and Infant Mental Health work, we are campaigning to change this but we need your help!
On Thursday 4 March at 10am join Chris Miezitis from Fathers Network Scotland to find out how the conversations have been progressing since the last meeting in November and how you can get involved.
A summary of the action so far can be found HERE and full notes and actions from the last meeting can be found HERE
