Parenthood is a whirlwind. It’s a time of great joy, but also of immense change. As new parents, you’re juggling new roles, demands, and responsibilities. It’s no wonder that so many parents feel exhausted, overwhelmed, and even depressed or anxious.
But there is hope. Research shows that dads who know what to expect and have the right support can better manage the transition to parenthood.
That’s why the Parent-Infant Research Institute (PIRI) has developed DadSpace, a website dedicated to supporting fathers across Australia. DadSpace provides information, strategies, tips, and resources specifically for dads.
And now, PIRI is excited to launch DadBooster, a free online program designed to help dads who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression. DadBooster is the first program of its kind in Australia, and PIRI is looking for 50 dads to help evaluate its effectiveness.
If you’re a dad who is struggling, remember you’re not alone.
