Is Dad depressed?

For new dads, is there a male equivalent of PPD (aka postpartum depression)? There isn't much research into the subject, but in talking to other counselors and therapists, I would estimate that rates of paternal depression range up to about 25 percent when there isn't concurrent PPD in the female partner and as high as 50 percent among men whose partners are also experiencing postpartum depression. Rates are even higher in dads who work from home or stay at home, so it looks like there are a lot of sad SAHDs (Stay At Home Dads) out there. While men might not experiences the hormonal changes that give rise to PPD, they do experience substantial life changes that can trigger depression.
