International Men's Day: Support for New Dads from the Mental Health Foundation

Today is International Men’s Day and an important opportunity to focus on men’s mental health. Men are less likely than women to talk about their mental health; but help, support and advice is out there.

One under-reported area in life where mental health can be affected is fatherhood. Becoming a parent is joyful and exciting for men, but can also be a time of worry and uncertainty.

Conducted through the Dads and Football project, a recent survey found that 70% of Dads want more information on what to expect when becoming a Dad. In response to the need expressed by Dads involved in the project, the Mental Health Foundation teamed up with the Fatherhood Institute to create ‘Becoming Dad’, a useful guide containing up-to-date research and information alongside lots of practical tips and advice.

>> The ‘Becoming Dad’ guide is free and can be downloaded here <<

Please do share with the men in your life; brothers, husbands and sons.
