Male PND Topic on Radio NZ

Radio NZ National’s 9 to noon programme helped Father & Child Trust raise awareness for postnatal depression in men.

Father and Child Auckland Coordinator Brendon Smith and Wellington-based Board member and GP Mark Stephenson featured in a 20-minute segment on the topic, in which both the personal and the clinical aspects of the illness were discussed.

Show host Kathryn Ryan also challenged a Ministry of Health representative for better recognition of the condition, which affects about one father for every two mothers.
