Irvine, CA (Vocus/PRWEB ) July 31, 2009 -- In an effort to reach and educate more men about Postpartum Depression (PPD) and what they can do; Boot Camp for New Dads (http://www.bcnd.org), a non-profit orientation program for fathers-to-be, operating in more than 260 hospitals, clinics, schools, fire stations and churches around North America and internationally, is now working with Katherine Stone, a nationally-recognized, award-winning advocate for women with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, and author of Postpartum Progress.

Boot Camp will be working with Stone in the development of a new section on the bcnd.org website that is dedicated to PPD, as well as collaborating with Postpartum Support International on their website.

According to Postpartum Support International, one in eight women suffer from a postpartum mood disorder. New dads (and veteran dads) should know the difference between the Baby Blues and Postpartum Depression (PPD). Oftentimes, these disorders go undiagnosed because a new mother's support system, typically the husband/partner, does not know what to look for and where to go to get help.

Working with more than 200,000 new dads over the past 19 years, Boot Camp for New Dads advises new fathers to watch for signs of PPD in mom and offers tips on how to recognize it.
