NewMen's Minds Matter Too! Experiences and Tips Shared in Conversation

Did you know:

- That currently, suicides are at an alarming high (since the year 2000) and the male suicide rate is around three times higher than that of women
- That 1 in 5 adults report some form of depression – an increase of over 100% since before Covid-19!
- And that mental ill-health costs the UK economy more than £94bn

 

This November is men’s mental health month, with 19th November marking International Men’s Day. What better time is there to learn about this vital topic, get empowered, and take action!

Join our guest speaker, Jay Dungeni, Deputy Chief Nurse at Guys and St Thomas’s, in conversation with our trainer, Dr Roger Prentis, a midlife expert, about the importance of male wellbeing, particularly around emotional wellbeing, at midlife.

Roger and Jay will be discussing lived experiences, information, and facts about this critical time of life, particularly in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and its ongoing effects on people and organisations.
