Film – Call me dad

Call Me Dad is a story about men who have perpetrated, or are at risk of perpetrating, family violence. At stake is the safety of children and partners, the stability of families, and the power we as a society have to intervene.

These men struggle to maintain intimate relationships without resorting to abuse, physical or otherwise. We follow these men over several months, as they attempt to change themselves, and heal fragile bonds with their loved ones.

About the ‘Strong Fathers, Strong Families’ program.

The Strong Fathers Strong Families program is to promote the role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Dads, Pops and Uncles to be healthy role models and engage fully in the child’s life as early as possible. Carbal Medical Services would like to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males to participate in this program to contribute positively to the health and wellbeing of the mother’s pregnancy and a “nurturing” and supportive family environment for the infant.

Strong Fathers Strong Families will be conducting male-inclusive and/or “separate” men’s antenatal programs to support males in preparing for fatherhood. Community and group activities that promote positive, healthy, active fatherhood and grandfatherhood and the involvement of males in the early development of their children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces. Health promotion information that promotes new fatherhood and grandfatherhood as a motivating factor for self care, and care for families and children.

Involving men in the lives of their children is crucial for the child’s health and wellbeing, and has a strong intergenerational effect. In particular, fathers provide a critical role model for their children; strengthening their identity; and increasing their resilience to adversity. A good relationship between fathers and children also has a positive impact on fathers themselves, their partners and their communities

Teach your kids respect by being a good role model.

Benefits for children who have a strong relationship with their father: 

Better results at school.

Have better relationships.

Have a stronger connection
with their community.
