If you’re a researcher and would like to list your study you can find more information here.

Fatherhood and paternal health

Parenthood changes a person’s life – physically, mentally, emotionally, and environmentally. Despite this, there is very little known about the effect of parenthood on human cognition. Therefore, in this project, we are seeking to understand the effects of parenthood on human cognition across the first two years of a child’s life. To do this, Monash University is recruiting parents with at least one child who is aged between 0 and 24 months, and individuals who do not have children.

Dad Booster

Becoming a dad doesn’t happen overnight and doesn’t happen without a fair amount of upheaval and challenges — and 10% of men may experience symptoms of depression when expecting a new baby. New fathers who are struggling are often overlooked and their difficulties are not acknowledged by a system that has focused mainly on mother and baby health and wellbeing. DadBooster is designed for men (fathers or non-birthing partners) who are helping to care for a baby who are feeling overwhelmed and may be experiencing some of the signs of anxiety and depression.
