Mental health problems can affect anyone, regardless of gender, but men and women may react differently to problems they experience. More women than men are diagnosed with common mental health issues such as anxiety and depression; however, the rate of suicide is significantly higher in men. This suggests that some men suffering with mental distress may not be receiving (or asking) for the help they need. 

This course explores why men may find it harder to talk about their mental health or seek help, the impact of how we use language and the stigma around men’s mental health. It’s suitable for anyone interested in the effects of gender on our mental health.

Duration: This is a 3-part in-person course spread over 3 weeks. It will be 3 hours per part.
