In the discussion, we also explore generational issues such as parental role modelling and what impacts on our choices around emotional expression.

Episode 5 (Part 1) – Let’s discuss Men’s Mental Health



The issue of men’s mental health has been the focus of a lot of debate and a common theme is how difficult it is for men to open up and talk about how they feel. In this three-part episode, we have brought together a group of men, both service users and professionals who share and debate the issues that affect men today. This is a good opportunity to listen in on a heartfelt discussion about stigma, society expectations and the ways in which men are ‘supposed to be’. In this discussion, we talk about our own experiences of mental health issues, how we manage them and what needs to be different.
