At PND Borders we understand that postnatal depression impacts on all members of the family and that Fathers have a significant role to play in how their family manages to move forward.
With this is mind PND Borders provides a Fathers Group to support families. Each Group runs for ten weeks, with a weekly one hour session in the early evening, Groups can have up to six members.
Although each group is different, similar themes occur such as:
- The father’s role in family life
- The father’s experiences of being parented as a child
- The impact of postnatal depression on families, relationships and individuals
- Supporting their partner.
Partners of women who have been referred to the service are given the opportunity to join a Group.
