Auditorium, The Royal

The Royal is pleased to announce its next session of Conversations at The Royal 2017 series: “I am your FATHER” with Dr. Raj Bhatla, Psychiatrist in Chief at The Royal.

This informative, thought-provoking, and humorous Father's Day conversation will take a broad look at the biological, psychological and social aspects of fatherhood. During this conversation we will trace the historical and evolving role of fathers in our society. Questions regarding hormonal changes in fathers during pregnancy will also be addressed, including aspects of postpartum depression. Most importantly, we will examine the "father effect" on children's health and mother's wellbeing. "I am your FATHER" is the third of a three-part series focusing on male health and is preceded by a "Male Mental Health" conversation and "Men, Mustaches and Mental Health".

Join us as we celebrate the unique bond between a father and his child.
