A study recently released by beyondblue looking into the mental health of new fathers and how workplaces can support them shows that first time fathers are at a greater risk of psychological distress.

Despite this distress, new fathers are reluctant to identify this stress with depression and anxiety because of the negative attitudes that exist towards mental health issues.
