The statistics on men’s health issues demonstrate a crisis in the wellbeing of our menfolk.
Men are far more likely than women to die from mental health crises, alcoholism, drug abuse, heart disease, infectious diseases such as Covid-19, cancer and smoking-related diseases. In the UK, 1 in 5 men dies before the age of 65.
This year, Men’s Health Week is taking place from 15th to 20th June, and we have three special one hour workshops, all presented by our fully qualified and experienced male presenters, for your employees to access virtually:
– “Kindness and Compassion for Men” – Evolution and societal pressures have traditionally encouraged men and boys to feel that kindness and compassion are weak or “feminine” traits. However, kindness and compassion are attitudes and practices that require honesty and courage – and allow us to face up to the difficulties of our own lives and relationships, and respond to ourselves and others in a way that is supportive and empathetic. This ground-breaking session is presented by James, our cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy specialist, and explains the obstacles and instincts that exacerbate rather than alleviate our suffering, and provides a range of practical techniques to enable and facilitate compassion and kindness both towards ourselves and others.
– “Men’s Health” – this fantastic one hour workshop is created for men, by our award-winning men’s health specialist, Peter. The session enlightens and informs men about their wellbeing, and encourages men to get their minds and bodies on track. Highly interactive, the session covers physical activity, weight, safe alcohol consumption, cancer symptoms, prostate health, hypertension, mental health, accessing health services, and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
– “Men’s Mental Health” – men in Britain are particularly vulnerable to mental health issues. Suicide rates are three times higher for men than women, alcohol and substance abuse is rife, male self-harming rates are escalating, and eating disorders in boys and men are becoming more prevalent. This excellent men’s mental health workshop is presented by one of our male counselling psychotherapists, Chris, and educates men in the myriad ways they can enhance and improve their mental health. Includes signposting to your company’s existing professional mental health resources and those accessible in the wider community.
