    Default Male PND resources

    Hello gentlemen.

    I have posted some resources about male Postnatal Depression, as well as information about caring for a partner with PND.

    Hope it might be useful for some of you!

    Online self-help treatments

    http://www.moodgym.anu.edu.au
    Mood Gym is powered by the Centre for Mental Health Research (CMHR) at the Australian National University and “aims to help you identify and overcome problem emotions and show you how to develop good coping skills for the future”. You can start and stop as you go through the modules of this programme.

    http://ecouch.anu.edu.au
    ecouch is the latest offering from ANU and is “a self-help interactive program with modules for depression, generalised anxiety & worry, social anxiety, relationship breakdown, and loss & grief.” “It provides evidence-based information and teaches strategies drawn from cognitive, behavioural and interpersonal therapies as well as relaxation and physical activity.” E-couch is also a research site as they use information gathered through the programme so the government can understand more about how to help people with depression and anxiety. Privacy is assured, but you are able to use an alias if you prefer.

    http://www.llttf.com/index.php
    Living life to the full is authored by Dr Chris Williams, a Professor of Psychiatry and Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist at the University of Glasgow. He set up this programme to make CBT more widely available and does not profit from the site (even the bookstore proceeds go elsewhere). You can start and stop the programme as time allows.

    My pleasure, adz. Are you anxious about anything in particular? I know that you only have three weeks until due date, but I can highly recommend a one evening "workshop" for expecting dads, held in pubs around Australia. It covers mainly the birth, but might put you in a good place, so to speak. I don't know where you live, but have a look at the thread I wrote (which includes the link for the worksop) to see if they provide them where you live.

    http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...minar-for-dads

    Also, reach out to the experienced dads in here, who are sitting on a wealth of wisdom. I'm sure most of them would identify with some of the feelings you are having at the moment.

    Having honest conversations with your partner is usually also helpful. You might have some of the same anxieties, and expressing them out loud often takes the edge off a little bit. You might also be able to work out strategies together, to decrease some of your anxieties.

    The fact that you are an active member of bubhub and appreciate the resources I posted, says a lot about what kind of person you are.

    I wish you all the best, and please keep us posted on how you are doing.

    Greetings all

    Don't laugh about PND guys. This condition has an amazing abiliity to sneak up on you and kick your ****. It hangs on and doesn't like letting go. It drags you down to its level and will try to rule your life. It does this by destroying your drive and enjoyment of your life. I'm there right now and I know how vicious it is.

    Hook up with the links above and get yourself prepared and armed to fight off this insidious condition. It has me in its grasp right now but I'm fighting back with the help of a few people.

    This condition thrives by living in the shadows. So to fight it, you need to shine light on it, get it out in the open, talk about it and don't let it take over. Help for us is available and it works.

    Cheers and kindest regards to all

    Yeah thanks MuminMind, I was only just going to start a similar topic, but an uninformed one as opposed to the information you're posted up.

    I was going to say something along the lines of 'Everyone gets PND, it's just the reaction and severity that differ'. I know the wife and I, now with our second, seem to notice that things are different this time around, and there's not as much time to collect our thoughts as there was with just the one, and I feel that's bringing a few more issues to the surface.

    It seems more difficult, and we have to work harder to find more time to talk, which is tough. We try and support each other, and it can be hard to make sure we're ok, as opposed to putting the kids first, and cruising through..... if that makes sense.

    It's a confronting thing that I've found with parenting: no matter how big and strong you are, there are some things you have no control over, and you have to find other ways to sort it out.

    Hi guys.

    A female bubhubber has posted a thread about her DH in the 'postnatal health' section of the forum. He seems to exhibit some signs of PND and I was just wondering if those of you in here who have personal experience with PND could have a look at the thread and perhaps offer some advice:
