Today, we’re observing International Men’s Day, an annual event that focuses on men’s health and celebrates the positive contributions made by men.
This year’s focus is on ‘Better Health for Men and Boys’, with the aim to make practical improvements to the health and wellbeing of the male population.
- Did you know that 1 in 8 men suffer from a mental health problem?
- Did you know that three-quarters of suicides in England and Wales last year were male?
- Did you know that two construction workers take their own lives every day?
International Men’s day is about raising awareness and learning more about how we can help one another.
We asked colleagues from across St. Modwen to share their experiences and to discuss difficult subjects like mental health and suicide, together with easier topics such as attitudes, stress, exercise, education and bad habits.
So, make a cuppa, put your phone on silent and enjoy this video.
