Becoming a parent is a whirlwind experience, especially for new fathers. A trial program is being piloted across the state to help support expectant fathers get through the trials of the initial stages of fatherhood. The Focus on New Fathers project is being piloted for free in Murrumbidgee Local Health District and NSW Health invites all new dads in Griffith to sign up and take advantage.
