🧔🏾♂️ November marks Men’s Mental Health Month.
👨🏻As well as the ever-popular growing a moustache for ‘Movember’, there’s so much more you can do to raise awareness and help men (and whose who identify as male) find a path to better mental health.
We’ve shared a few suggestions for marking Men’s Mental Health Month at your workplace, as well as links to some inspiring articles you may wish to share with your colleagues and connections.
Host a Curry & Chaat
Take part in Mental Health UK’s Curry & Chaat fundraiser.You and your mates can all make the same recipe, or order take away and come together over Zoom and create a safe space for men to talk. You could virtually cook along with our health food chef Ceri to make a chicken or veggie curry, after which she can leave you to it to chat amongst yourselves. 🥘 More info on our Virtual Cooking (Curry) Class.
