Becoming a parent increases the risk of mental health problems for both men and women, but there is limited research examining this issue, particularly for fathers. In this session, we will provide an overview of mental health issues that fathers may face. We will discuss key risk factors, symptoms, and social determinants of mental health that explain the high prevalence of various disorders among men and fathers, including suicidality and substance use disorders. Field experts will describe what we know and the knowledge gaps that must be addressed.
