Fathers Matter has developed its own "screening tool," a series of questions to be asked
of new dads to identify those at risk from PND, entitled the "Vulnerability Index."
It is suggested that this will enable men to realize they are in fact ill, when they might
have explained their experiences another way. "
There is nothing weak or effeminate about realizing as a man, and a father, that you have thoughts and feelings you do not understand," explains the leaflet.
Encouraging men to come to realize that these feelings are, in truth, symptoms of illness, is the objective of this program.
It seems to have become widely accepted that the way we show we care for other people and have concern for them is by taking seriously—indeed, positively searching for—their traumatic and depressing experiences associated with pregnancy and parenthood and
giving them a medical label.
There is now a fairly widespread sensibility that there is much to gain, and little to lose, by creating a culture of awareness or heightened recognition through which as many parents
as possible, and mothers in particular, can be encouraged to interpret emotional problems and difficulties this way, and as a result seek help.
