I recently attended a talk at Chelmsford University on Men with Postnatal Depression, I was shocked to discover it’s not just women that suffer from this.
As a fully qualified counsellor and Psychotherapist, a mother of three, a grandmother of two and with a very large extended family I could not believe that this information had surpassed me.
Postnatal Depression in women has until recently been a taboo subject, women and their families have feelings of shame, guilt, helplessness and uselessness. So for men to have a voice in this area too, comes with its difficulties.
Here are just some of the symptoms for men that you may experiences if you're suffering from Post-Natal Depression
If you are a dad and you feel you’re affected by Postnatal Depression then go to your GP and reach out for counselling too.
