Dad Depression and How to Get Out of It: Dad University

Dad depression is no fun. So many dads suffer from depression yet it often goes undiagnosed or they avoid talking about or showing emotion so those around them aren’t even aware of the severity.

In this video, Jason offers some insight as to why so many fathers suffer from it and offers some suggestions on how you can get out of your dad depression.
