Its Mens Mental Health Month and Fathers, I need your help!
It's #mensmentalhealthmonth so I thought I would re-share some research I'm working on at the moment with the aim of increasing services and spreading awareness of mental health in fathers. I'm a trainee psychologist with the NHS and University of Surrey.
If you are or know a father with a child aged between 6-11 years old, please consider taking part in an online survey (link below) which gives an opportunity to discuss wellbeing, family and parenting during the COVID-19 pandemic. I have also included a bunch of mental health resources and support in the debrief, please do take a look.
Thanks for your time!
You're doing a great job. I'll show it to some of my friends who could participate in this survey
I'm a father of an 8-year boy. I've been through a difficult time recently. I was at the borderline of poverty. My wife is unemployed, and I was struggling by myself to keep the roof over our heads. I began drinking, and after an event, I abruptly quit and ended up with delirium "tremens." Fortunately, after that, I attended online aa meetings which I'm very grateful. These steps indeed help you to integrate into healthy social life. It's hard to manage with all, but thinking about the well-being of my son gives me the power to live further. I hope this survey will bring a contribution to society
