This second workshop looks at Masculinities and seeking support.
Looking at how masculinities can inhibit or encourage us to seek help or support in a particular way, we will explore the ways in which we talk to one another and how we can – both individually and together – build more supportive structures and communities.
● Looking at how we can build our social networks of support that encourage self-care and help-seeking
● Exploring how we can build personal trust and overcome discomfort to be able to seek help
● Reflecting upon the ‘armour’ or ‘masks’ we feel the need to wear to protect ourselves in the conversation around mental wellbeing.
