For dads and carers

Supportive dads/partners, family members and carers are always welcome. You can have a positive influence on the life of your loved one and support their recovery. In fact, your support can benefit the entire family.  

We engage dads, partners and carers as partners in the family’s care. We welcome your participation in care planning, care review meetings and some program activities. Your input is valued at each step of the mother’s journey.

Dads have a role to play at Mums and Kids Matter

We provide dads with practical strategies to strengthen and develop their ‘father craft’ skills. In addition, you can learn more about the mental health condition that your loved one is living with and how you can best help.

If you are directly involved in providing practical support for the mother and/or children, we work with you wherever possible, ensuring you receive support and assistance to access the services you need, to strengthen care giving and reduce fatigue and burnout.
