Why read it?

2 authors picked Parental Mental Health as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This is an honest and very direct look at how our society should include men in the discussion of becoming new parents and illustrates many examples of how men have been left out until now. Dads’ mental health is considered carefully which is very important to my mission. This small yet excellent book offers a gender-equitable, whole family viewpoint of parental mental health and increases awareness about best practices in the care of fathers and fathers-to-be.  

From Shoshana's list on for dads and dads-to-be.

The authors are well-known experts on parental mental health. The book shows their passion and how we need to be more father-inclusive as personally, I believe that supporting all new parents for their mental health has far better outcomes for the whole family and the development of the child.
