A story told from a personal experience by international campaigner Mark Williams (author of Daddy Blues) who after speaking to over two thousand dads who have suffered in silence, now campaigns for all parents to be supported and screened during the antenatal and postnatal period.
The biggest killer in men under 45 is suicide and the UK still have no mention of the word “Fathers” on CG192 Nice Guidelines (Clinical Guide no, 192: Antenatal and postnatal mental health: clinical management and service guidance. National Institute of Healthcare Excellence).
In 2004 Mark experienced depression and suffered in silence for years until a breakdown. He founded International Fathers Mental Health Day and #Howareyoudad campaign to make sure all parents are having support for the whole family after speaking to over two thousand fathers around the world since 2011.
