Description

Lincoln PANDAS and Lincs Maternity Voices Partnership are thrilled to invite you to this event on 27th October focusing on Dads mental health - How are you Dad?

Join us for a this CHARITY FUNDRAISER raising awareness, educating and understanding the importance of Dad's mental health. This often overlooked illness NEEDS to be talked about more.

We all know that Dads are under-represented when it comes to perinatal mental health. We all know that male suicide rates are too high. We all know the stigma attached to mens mental health.

We have the amazing Mark Williams, founder of International Father's mental Health Day and author of Daddy Blues sharing his lived experience of postnatal depression and anxiety.

About Mark Williams

Mark is well versed in all things mental health, through his experience of panic attacks, post-natal depression, ADHD and a mental breakdown in 2011.

Mark suffered crippling anxiety after the birth of his son and hit rock bottom when he began to experience suicidal thoughts. The problem at the time was that Mark felt he could not speak to anyone about his stressful condition and ultimately it led to a breakdown. There is still a stigma attached to men admitting that they have post-natal depression. Mark wants to get the message out about the condition and the help available.

Mark is committed to raising awareness of mental health issues for fathers and has already spoken at over 100 conferences and events. Mark has undertaken extensive training in the field in order to help others in the same position. He was awarded Inspirational Father of the year and Local Hero at the Pride of Britain Awards in 2011.

That's why this event is ESSENTIAL for any of the following people:

  • Any Dad experiencing mental health issues

  • Partners of Dad's experiencing mental health issues

  • Any healthcare professionals working with parents

  • Business owners/Directors/Managers that want to support Fathers in the workplace

  • Expecting parents or those planning to conceive

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share with everyone you know.

You just don't know who might need this. This will provide excellent training tools for health professionals too.

This is a charity fundraiser for Lincoln PANDAS support group

All donations made will go directly to supporting families experiencing mental distress in Lincoln. We respectfully ask that you make a donation to secure your ticket and all proceeds go towards helping families in the local community. We suggest a £10 donation to help us cover costs.
