Fathers that have disabilities struggle with their roles in families. We have counselled many fathers who are suffering from mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety. In these situations we have a psychiatrist called in to provide assistance. A father with a mental disability or that suffers from psychological conditions can negatively impact their family and kids.
One organization that is helping on this front is the Fathers Network For Disabilities. We are proud to support this organization in Washington. This organization also supports with disabilities. Many fathers who we work with have had workplace accidents such as paralysis or being unable to walk.
In regards to our organization, we provide many services to fathers who need help. Our father network not only provides mental support but also monetary assistance to fathers who are in need. Through government funding, we have many resources that individuals may not be able to access.
