The Fatherhood Project

The Fatherhood Project is a non-profit fatherhood organization in the Department of Psychiatry at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Boston, MA. Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of children by empowering fathers to be active, informed and emotionally engaged with their children and families.
