Are men allowed to find fatherhood difficult?

5 Live's Nihal Arthanayake speaks to an author whose new book has sparked a conversation about fathers' mental health, and hears from dads who felt too guilty to talk about it.

The National Childbirth Trust a couple of years back found that 38% of fathers were worried about their mental health.

But do men feel too guilty to talk about it?

5 Live's Nihal Arthanayake spoke to Nial Giacomelli, an author whose fictional book 'The Therapist' has opened up a conversation about dads' mental health and paternal post-natal depression.

Nihal also speaks to callers about their experiences of fatherhood.
