Depression for Fathers

The arrival of a new baby brings big changes for both parents.  Health care providers are growing more aware of how common depression is among new dads as well as new moms.  Indeed, when a mom has depression, a dad is much more likely to have depression as well.  This can strongly impact the health of the entire family. We will ask you about any symptoms of depression at your baby’s first few well visits but please call us at (417) 882-1600 if you have concerns for yourself, your partner or your baby.
