Being a new parent is a huge adjustment, especially for dads, who sometimes don’t have the proper support for this phase of life. The Institute of Family and Community Impact’s Father’s Feelings study gives dads with children 12 months old or younger an opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings about their babies and their lives as parents.
The Institute for Family and Community Impact’s Father’s Feelings study is gaining attention across the state, spotlighting a much needed resource and support system for dads struggling with depression.
“Becoming a new dad can be both exciting and overwhelming at the same time. However, most people don’t think about providing postpartum support for fathers,” said OCTF Executive Director Lindsay Williams. “Because fathers are instrumental in child rearing, we want to make sure they have the resources they require to be successful caregivers, too. The Father’s Feelings project is helping us to understand and address their specific needs in a meaningful way.”
