Men: It’s OK to Talk (and other ways to process difficult stuff)

  • Tue 11 Jun 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
  • Online
    • Jay Unwin, Mental Health in Business

Talking is good for us. We all know that and yet some of us find it hard to talk about how we feel, especially when we aren’t feeling good. This session is aimed at men and those who would like to support the men in their lives. The aim of the session is to shine a light on why some men find it difficult to open up, to explore ways to support men when they are struggling and to share some alternative ways to process difficult stuff, for those who really don’t like talking. In this interactive session, attendees will develop an understanding of some of the challenges facing men today and will take away some helpful ways to support men (or themselves) through difficult times.

    • Jeff Heasman

We naturally ask the client if there is anything they didn´t understand and often, the client replies “No”. Or we ask if everything was clear and the client answers “Yes”. But can we rely on these answers as being an accurate reflection of whether the client truly has listened to and understood that advice? The answer is NO!!

Financial strain is recognised as being one of the key stress factors for adults, and it can be a major risk factor for poor mental health. It is not uncommon for people to neglect their mental health, specifically when they are experiencing financial stress. This can lead to significant problems in the long term and even worsen the existing financial stress. In this session, we will explore the relationship between financial stress and health - and attendees will leave with practical tools to help them combat financial stress, and stay well.
