Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide.

Together with Keeping Well NWL, we hosted an online men’s health wellbeing session.

If you missed the event, you can watch the recording here.

Dr Ryan Kemp, CNWL Director of Therapies facilitated the session with a range of guests talking about health and wellbeing topics, discussing how learning evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help with feelings like anxiety and depression.

We heard from Shaun Hare who works at West London as a service manager within our psychological therapies service line.

Ruben Seetharamdoo, Author of the Five Ways to Wellbeing book outlined some techniques staff can use to help themselves if they're feeling overwhelmed or finding things difficult.

Peter Helmer ran a special mindfulness session, encouraging men to attend his one-to-one free weekly groups. If you are interested, click here to find out more on the NWL website.

Matt Waugh shared how looking after your physical health is proven to have a positive impact on your overall mental health.

International Men's Day is today (19 November) where this year’s theme is making a positive difference to the lives of men and boys.

 

We have a dedicated Men’s Health self-help category with information and advice on men’s physical and mental health.
