Dads matter. Partners matter, period. Today, we’re focusing on Dads specifically because of the upcoming holiday, Father’s Day.
Dads are often the first ones to notice something isn’t quite right. They’re the ones on the front lines with us and their level of support (positive or negative) can seriously affect how well (and how quickly) a mom recovers from her Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorder.
The kicker, however, is that dads are also susceptible to mood disorders of their own as they start out into fatherhood as well – and they’re at an even higher risk of this if mom has her own issues going on.
