Male Mental Health Session
The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) published findings from a 2014 survey which highlighted that whilst more men are seeking counselling, numbers are still low compared to women, and that evidence suggests men will not seek counselling unless it is for a serious mental health problem.
It is well documented that the biggest killer of males under 45 is suicide and that the majority of offenders committing violent crimes are men. This highlights the need for a specialist approach which addresses tackles myths and addresses barriers for boys in dealing with mental issues and asking for help.
