Consultancy & Training
More and more organisations, in both the public and private sectors, are recognising the need to support men with their mental health. But it is not always clear on the best ways to go about introducing this to the organisation.
That's where we come in.
We work closely with health and social services, as well as private organisations, to help them make their services more accessible to men and boys and advise on how they can promote and support the psychological needs of the men in their organisations.
We provide training on a range of issues pertinent to men and boys, which we deliver to various organisations, health services and schools. By upskilling management and staff to recognise the psychological difficulties men and boys experience, they are in a better position to support them and prevent difficulties from escalating. Training packages include “developing emotional vocab”, “mental health first aid for men”, “the anger trap” and “managing thoughts of self-harm and suicide”. However, we are able to create bespoke training packages based on the needs of your service.
We regularly provide workshops to trainee clinical psychologists studying on doctorate courses in the West Midlands. These focus on developing understanding of the development of difficulties for men and boys, how these manifest and ways in which to tailor interventions and services to meet their needs.
In November 2019 we collaborated with Wesleyan, Birmingham, for their International Men's Day festivities. This included delivering an interactive workshop to their diverse team on understanding and managing stress and the impact psychological stress can have on men and boys. The event was a huge success, with a great turn out and positive feedback.
“I felt the topic of male mental health was exceptionally well covered. It gave good practical advice and didn't force views on attendees. There was a good evidence base provided without the presentation being overly stats based.”
“Very informative and good techniques and advice provided.”
What they've said about us...
“It was the first event... that I didn't feel excluded from based on my gender, race and sexuality.”
“I liked that it was partially interactive where we could think about our own lives and what was relevant to us, but not fully interactive where we have to discuss amongst ourselves.
