It’s a well-known fact that men are less likely to open up about their mental health. Join us at 2pm till 4pm on Friday 24th July to explore some of the reasons behind this, and think about how we can make mental health support more accessible for men in Somerset.
The conversations around what makes good mental health support need to include input from those who live with it. Please come along and provide that very important perspective.
There will be three short presentations from the speakers, followed the chance to take part in themed group discussions.
Rob from 'Dudes & Dogs' will share the story of why he set up a dog walking support network in Bristol, and how it has changed lives.
Daniel Berrio-Galan, Somerset GP and Life Coach will introduce his unique perspective on men's self esteem, and discuss why he started to think about this complex topic differently and what helps.
Ian McClure, experienced speaker and trainer on a variety of topics related to men's wellbeing, recovery and mental health, will introduce the topic of 'Implosion'. What happens when anger turns inwards, why this can lead to isolation for men in particular, and what can be done to improve this?
