NSW Health’s Focus on New Fathers pilot aims to help fathers feel confident and supported in their role. The program sends text messages to dads, offering valuable health advice and links to support options.
The Parenting Research Centre with Deakin Health Economics is conducting an evaluation of the Focus on New Fathers pilot on behalf of the NSW Ministry of Health. The evaluation will explore whether digital screening may be an effective model for assessing perinatal anxiety and depression and providing support to fathers and co-parents.
If you are a professional working with perinatal fathers/co-parents, they would like to know more about your experiences.
Participation involves a brief online survey, with the option to complete the survey again in 12 months, and/or to participate in a focus group.
