Help us develop tools for Dads

Help us develop tools for Dads

We are asking for men with partners who are pregnant or have recently had a baby and feeling OK, to help us understand how we can adapt digital tools to support men’s mental health as they make the transition to parenthood.

Statistics

Each year over 60,000 Australian women suffer antenatal and/or postnatal depression, and the figures are likely to be just as high for anxiety. The estimated lifetime costs are over 7 billion dollars.

PIRI’s Areas of Speciality

Our areas of speciality include:
• Antenatal and postnatal depression/ anxiety
• Transition to parenthood
• Premature birth
• Enhancing mental health and infant development

Support During a Challenging Time

We understand new and expectant parents may feel concerned about COVID-19. Here at PIRI we are continuing to offer digital (via MumSpace) and telehealth options to support families.
