This course is for those who already have a basic level of understanding of the psychological process that men go through in making the decision to seek (or not seek) help for problems related to mental wellbeing. It is more widely becoming known that while men are increasingly talking about mental wellbeing, they are still not engaging with services when they need to. This course will focus on how to promote mental health in ways that better engage men.
