Just For Dads

Parenting a new baby is challenging; full of highs and lows. It can feel even harder if you or your partner are struggling with Postpartum Mood Disorder (PPMD). 1 in 5 women and 1 in 10 men will experience PPMD after the birth or adoption of their baby. Getting support is important.

Join Patrick Mahoney BScN, RN. at Just For Dads, taking place this fall.

In this workshop, dads will:

  • learn about the signs and symptoms of PPMD,
  • discuss what it means to experience PPMD,
  • talk about ways to support their partner experiencing PPMD,
  • explore resources available to men and women, and
  • discuss ways to manage parenting a new child.
