Divorce can be an isolating experience for most people. However divorced fathers seem to experience psychological damage in a different way than divorced mothers. They are less likely to reach out for help during this time and as a result, divorced dads are eight times more likely to commit suicide than divorced mothers. Eran Magen PhD, creator of DivorcingDads.Org realized that men were missing a sense of community and connection. His website is run by dads, for dads, providing support and advice from other men who are going through or who have gone through a divorce or separation. Magen completed post-doctoral training in population health and served as the research director for the University of Pennsylvania's Department of Counseling and Psychological Services. He is also the founder and CEO of Early Alert, which works with universities and K-12 schools to prevent student suicide as well as the founder of Parenting For Humans, a relationship-first, trauma-informed parenting movement.
