Why focus on men? 

Although societal views are evolving, alot of men still try to adhere to traditional expectations.

Men have been and are still considered in society’s norms as the breadwinners, the gladiators and the ones to navigate challenges in the workplace. 

However a survey by Mind has shown that the workplace is the biggest cause of mental health in men in the UK. 

Let’s look at the harsh truths. 

“ An interesting and stimulating experience..”
— Michael ( Senior SCADA Engineer)

Harsh Truths

  • 200,000 men a year feel anxious, stressed or depressed. 

  • 32% blamed work for causing mental health problems 

  • 3 in 4 people who take their own lives are men under 35 

  • Men are less likely to talk about mental health challenges 

  • Men are more likely to self medicate with alcohol and substance misuse. 

Stats source: MIND charity.

These stats show that there is a societal problem with men’s mental health.
The aim of Men’s wellbeing at work is to get men to just talk.

Talk, yes just talk. 

“ The experience and knowledge you gain from this is invaluable. This is a place where you can express how you really feel in a safe environment where advice and support could be provided. “
— Kevin ( software developer )


Why the workplace? 

The workplace is where men spend a 1/3 of their lives.
It is where they get paid, where men get their sense of purpose & achievement but it is also where they get the most amounts of anxiety and stress. 

How is your work-life balance?

“ The course offers some interesting insights into well being that can be easily ignored.”

What have you done so far?

We’ve provided over 300 spaces for men in our groups, engaged over 1000 men and women internationally in conversations of masculinity.

In the past, we’ve worked with educational institutions like Sheffield Hallam University to corporate like Amey plc.
We’ve also taken these powerful conversations to leaders from the likes of Lego, Tesla, BUPA, the london stock exchange and even the cycling olympic coach who supported Gold medal winners in 2012 olympics.

We want to share the learnings to S.M.Es.

Our founder also set up MEN UP NORTH.
MEN UP NORTH (M.U.N) is a men only group sessions to create a safe space to have open honest conversations.
We are a forward thinking community of men from 21-60 attending from 15 different heritage & social backgrounds from the unwaged, students, successful business owners to C-suite level executives.

M.U.N sessions are usually fully booked with a waiting list. Most recently in 3 hours!

The aim is to bring men from wide age groups and different walks of life together to share, listen and to gain an understanding of the different perspectives on issues men face relating to mental health and navigating what it means to be man in the modern world.

Why the focus on Small and medium business? 

12.5 million days are lost due to mental health issues. If you are a large business, you can absorb the costs of employees taking sick days off, but a small business can’t afford to. 

Stat from: HSE (Health & safety executive)

You might be thinking? 

I can just hire somebody else. Yes you can but... 

Hiring somebody else means that it will take on average 6 months to train that person up and get them efficient.

For your business, can you absorb the cost of lower productivity?

The part about opening up to each other was useful. The part about it being ok to be openly vulnerable in the workplace was also interesting.
