Men's Mental Health
This month is Men's Health Awareness Month aka Movember! and so we will be looking at men's health through a mental health lens - focussing on prevention, early intervention and health promotion. The rate of male suicide is alarmingly high: 3 out of 4 suicides in the UK are by men.
This webinar explores how we can work towards a world where men take action to be mentally well, and are supported by those around them; and where men and boys are comfortable speaking out and seeking help in difficult times.
This session is aimed at men - and anyone with men and boys in their lives!
What are some of the symptoms of poor mental health for men? Why are male suicide rates higher than women?
We will look into these issues and give some practical guidance on how we can all support the men around us to be well and thrive.
By attending this presentation delegates should be able to:
- Identify the early signs of mental ill health in men and boys (and themselves).
- Understand how to start a conversation about mental health
- Support men and boys to access appropriate help and support
- Understand the importance of helping men and boys to stay mentally healthy, build strong connections and take action early when times are tough
- Be a part of the conversation on men's mental health.
