Post-Partum Depression for Fathers

Posted:

While post-partum depression among mothers is relatively well-known, a new study suggests new fathers may also be prone to mental health problems.

The study presented to the American Psychiatric Association says that by the time a baby is about nine-months old, 10% of dads are showing signs of depression. Reasons may include fatigue, financial responsibilities, and even a changed relationship with the mom.
