AIMH (UK) National Conference 2017
'Working effectively with fathers during the perinatal period'
Recent research shows that fathers are now as important to the mental health of babies as mothers. For example, the prevalence of depression and anxiety in fathers during the postnatal period, whilst lower than mothers, is still significant and children of fathers experiencing these problems face an increased risk of adverse emotional and behavioural outcomes, independent of maternal mental health. Perhaps, most importantly, fathers can protect children from the consequences of maternal mental health problems.
This one-day conference will provide an opportunity to both listen to and observe practitioners working with fathers experiencing a range of difficulties, with the aim of promoting the mental health of the baby.
