Support for families must never be exclusive or discriminatory. Everyone deserves to be loved and nurtured throughout life. Gender and age do not hinder giving and receiving care, empathy and kindness. Throughout life’s journey from birth to death caring for others is what binds us together. Parental Mental Health captures the essence of conception, birth and beyond. There are no boundaries. It is what being inclusive truly means.
The mental health of grandparents cannot be ignored as they parent another generation. They are part of important public health decisions, implications and policies for society.
Fathers must be included in the discussion about early parenthood, to foster a gender-equitable, whole-family approach to parental mental health.
