Young dads are at risk for postpartum depression
Young dads can develop depressive symptoms over their first few years of fatherhood, according to a new study. Men who entered into fatherhood at around age 25 saw a 68 percent increase of depressive symptoms over their first five years of being dads — if they lived at the same home as their children. The study, which was published in the journal Pediatrics, looked at 10,623 young men who were participating in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health.
