Fathers symptoms were more that of irritability, withdrawing from the family unit through increased hours at work, and anger and the fathers reported that some of the reasons they felt depressed were due to young age of the child, limited social or family support, not feeling attached to the child, and acclimating to a new life role of being a father.
