Working effectively with fathers during the perinatal period

September 29, 2017 in London

‘Working effectively with fathers during the perinatal period’

Conference Overview

Recent research shows that fathers are now as important to the mental health of babies as mothers.mental health problems. For example, the prevalence of depression and anxiety in fathers during the postnatal period, whilst lower than mothers, is still significant and children of fathers experiencing these problems face an increased risk of adverse emotional and behavioural outcomes, independent of maternal mental health. Perhaps, most importantly, fathers can protect children from the consequences of maternal mental health problems.
