Challenges for fathers
The transition to parenthood can be especially challenging for dads, who may face new challenges such as adjusting to their new role, balancing work and family life, and experiencing changes in their relationship with their partner. You may also experience a range of new emotions, such as anxiety, joy, confusion, and uncertainty. You are not alone.
The Parent-Infant Research Institute (PIRI) has been working with Aussie dads to design an online treatment program called DadBooster, a world-first program is for fathers who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression. PIRI is conducting a study to evaluate the effectiveness of the DadBooster program and is looking for 50 dads to help out.
