Recording: Inspiring Men to Take Charge of Mental Health, Mar 13, 2018

Being male is an often overlooked risk factor for an extensive list of negative health outcomes. Societal constructs of masculinity prevent some men from proactively seeking help or engaging in their mental wellness, resulting in public health crisis like suicide, prescription drug overdose, and violence. This session explores those constraints and introduces Man Therapy, a digital tool that focuses on working-age males designed to reframe and reshape the conversation around men’s mental health.
