This is according to a study on Social Support during the Postpartum Period by Negron, Martin, Almog, Balbierz, and Howell (2013) stating that social support is crucial for a mother's physical and emotional well-being after childbirth, facilitating a smoother transition to motherhood by providing a sense of safety, care, understanding, and assistance from supportive individuals. This movement is based on MotherHope Indonesia survey on the Facebook group, titled "Percentage of Mothers with Depression and Anxiety Disorders. We conducted a small survey with 74 participants who Experience Difficulties in Providing MPASI 6-12." The survey found that 94% of mothers struggle with giving complementary foods, experiencing symptoms such as irritability, difficulty concentrating, excessive anxiety, insomnia, hopelessness, and suicidal thoughts. As a result, the MPASI Fathers movement was established to encourage fathers to participate in parenting and support mothers who have mental health problems or disorders. 

The event organized a cooking workshops and competitions for fathers to prepare complementary foods besides providing a couple workshop that focuses on the mental well-being of young parents covering the topic of assertive communication, early detection of postpartum depression, and partner's love language to overcoming marital conflict.  

That reached 60 participants (married couples) that achieved more than target participants, 19 fathers participated in complementary-food cooking workshop, 30 couples learned about baby blues syndrome and Postpartum depression, how to early detect and ask for professional help. The post-event reflection also showed that those couples have learnt five practical steps of assertive communication; write problems on paper, approach partners to talk, do assertive communication with prepared sentences, communicate with eyes, and finally journal the action plannings by writing on a worksheet. 

In the long-run, MotherHope Indonesia hope the program that has been organized is able to increase mental health literacy among new mothers and fathers especially through social and mass media channels. Since the program also featured promoting gender equality campaign in domestic area, fostering household cohesiveness and harmony, they hope fathers who participated can serve as role models for other fathers.
