Dr Matthew Roberts


Dr Matthew Roberts trained as a perinatal psychiatrist, a medical specialist in mental health of pregnancy and early family life. In addition, he is a Fatherhood Clinician, a role he has developed to promote healthy fatherhood in all its stages.

Matthew works in private practice and at Mercy Health O’Connell Family Centre; he is also a passionate writer and speaker on perinatal and family health matters, with journal publications as well as a blog www.mydoctorshandwriting.com attracting international praise on social media. In response, he is now calling himself a Clinical Science Communicator and so far no one has told him to stop.

A working musician and (most importantly) father of three, Matthew openly admits that he probably needs to meditate more. Meanwhile, his kids bring him down to earth daily by complaining about his jokes.
