Dads in Distress

'Dads in Distress' is a national support group for dads experiencing separation

Support is available by phone, LiveChat, email, through our online forum, checklist and in person at the locations listed below

Everything we do is 100% free, male friendly and confidential; everyone you'll talk with is a volunteer and a peer who's been through it themselves

Each year, we help thousands of parents deal with the trauma of separation; a major cause of suicide in Australia.

Separating men in particular, make up one of the largest definable groups who take their lives each year. That's where we focus.

We believe every child deserves the best possible start in life; so we work hard to keep separated dads alive and in their kids lives. Mums too. Parents Beyond Breakup is the registered charity behind front line support service Dads in Distress.
