World Suicide Prevention Day – 10th September

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50 and dads with mental health problems during the perinatal period are up to 47 times more likely to be at risk of suicide.

Campaigner, author and founder of International Fathers Mental Health Day, Mark Williams releases his 10 year report on Dad’s mental health today.

Evidence shows that more needs to be done to support fathers in the perinatal period. Organisations are calling on the WHO Commissioners to understand the importance of thinking about the whole family when it comes to support in the perinatal period.
