Our dads' group, Rooted, is an opportunity to socialize and support each other through the highs and lows of fatherhood. Finding a community of dads increases your likelihood of a successful and enriching fatherhood experience and can reduce stress - especially for stay-at-home dads.
1 in 10 dads will experience a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder, and 1 in 5 dads may have a partner experiencing a PMAD. We know that dads do not receive the same resources and support that mothers do. Rooted is a safe space for dads to talk about their own personal experiences and gain some insight from others local dads.
