Men’s Mental Health: How to Remove the Stigma
24 November @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm BST
It’s November, the month dedicated to raising awareness on Men’s mental health. With that in mind, we would like to use this opportunity to get the conversation started on this topic and invite you to submit your questions on the stigma around men approaching therapy and asking for help.
Why is there a stigma around therapy? Are men more likely to keep their feelings to themselves? What is the best approach for changing this narrative?
Join us for a lunchtime panel discussion and interactive conversation where we dive into this very important topic.
This workshop will be recorded and you can use the ticket function to pre-purchase the recording before the event. This will be useful for colleagues who are not able to attend the event live and also for those who attend the event live and want to watch it again.
This workshop will be hosted on the Zoom meeting platform where we will use our camera and microphones to interact with each other as a group.
To support practitioners in this time of extraordinary circumstances we are offering access to this group for a self-select fee.
The self-select fee is a radical inclusion policy to open learning for all colleagues. The guide price for this event is £20.00, however, we appreciate that income varies greatly in different locations and circumstances. Please contribute what you can to help us maintain inclusive professional training.
All the colleagues at ONLINEVENTS and the presenters we collaborate with are committed to working in a manner consistent with the BACP Ethical Framework, which can be accessed on the link below. When registering for this event you are agreeing to be present and interact in a manner that is consistent with this Framework.
