Richard Fletcher is an Associate Professor at the Family Action Centre at the University of Newcastle. For years now he’s been interested in the mental health of dads, particularly new dads.
He says postnatal depression is something health professionals need to be more equipped to deal with, and he’s working out strategies to reach dads in trouble.
