Dads in Distress Program
Last updated January 8, 2024
Dads in Distress supports dads experiencing trauma through family breakdown and separation anxiety often leading to stress, depression, isolation, and suicide. Dads in Distress uses a peer support group program to engage and support parents by listening and empathising with their life experience. The support groups use both a psychotherapeutic and a psychoeducational model that supports parents through their time of distress and builds on their resilience and confidence to face changes in their lives. Dads in Distress has been engaged by the PHN to establish local peer support groups on the Central Coast and Newcastle.
The frequency and time of the local DiDs groups can be found on their website:
