Fathers report experiencing negative feelings and psychological difficulties during the perinatal period

The perinatal period is the time from the start of pregnancy to 1 year after the child has been born. During the perinatal period, an estimated 5% –10% of fathers will develop above-threshold symptoms of paternal depression. During this period, fathers can experience a high level of stress which can have negative effects on themselves and their families. This review aims to explore the needs and experiences associated with the mental health of fathers during this perinatal period.

The neurosteroid allopregnanolone, a progesterone derivative, is important for its role in positively modulating GABAA receptors. GABA-mediated signaling has been previously implicated in major depressive disorder. Allopregnanolone-mediated signaling has been identifie...

World Psychiatry. 2021 Oct;20(3):417-436. doi: 10.1002/wps.20894.ABSTRACTDecades of research have revealed numerous risk factors for mental disorders beyond genetics, but their consistency and magnitude remain uncer-tain. We conducted a "meta-umbrella" systematic synthesis of umbrella reviews, which are systematic reviews of meta-analyses of individual studies, by searching international databases from inception to January 1, 2021. We included umbrella reviews on non-purely genetic risk or protective factors for any ICD/DSM mental disorders, applying an established classification of the credibility of the evidenc...
