    The landscape around Mental Health has been changing for a while now. The stigma is falling away, people are becoming more open to discussing their experiences and workplaces are introducing more ways to improve mental health amongst employees. It is becoming increasingly important to develop skills to help ourselves and others deal with difficulties in the workplace as well as their personal lives.

    You will learn:
    – How to protect and maintain positive mental health

    Menopause: Real People, Real Stories

    Menopause. It’s a natural, inevitable life transition for half the population, but are we giving it the attention it deserves? Would you know what symptoms to expect or how to talk about it with friends, family and colleagues? Even if you won’t experience menopause, would you feel comfortable supporting the people around you who will?

    To celebrate World Menopause Day, we are teaming up with menopause support pioneer, Peppy, for a virtual event that is open to everyone. Whether you’re interested for personal reasons, to help look after a loved one or simply to build your awareness, you will take away answers, insight and real-life experiences of menopause.

    What to expect:

    – ‘What you need to know’: An introduction by menopause expert Kathy Abernethy, former chair of the British Menopause Society
    – ‘How menopause impacted my life’: Personal stories from real people
    – An anonymous audience Q&A, so your questions can be answered

    Is It Ever Time to Man-Up?

    Societal Expectations; the ways in which men and women have been traditionally expected to behave may play a role in mental health. For men, societal expectations about how men “should” behave and what masculinity is includes the expectation that men be the breadwinners of their family, and that they display what have traditionally been perceived as masculine traits like strength, stoicism, dominance, and control.

    While wanting to feel, and feeling, strong and in control are not inherently negative things, some research suggests that a reliance on these traditional ideals as what it means to be “a man” may negatively impact men’s mental health. With men under-represented in statistics related to seeking and accessing help and yet over-represented in statistics related to suicide which represents the largest cause of death for men under 50, is it time men started to ‘man up’ when talking about mental health?
