Let’s Talk About Men’s Wellbeing

Following our highly successful menopause education campaign, it’s now time to look health issues that are specific to men. Join us on Tuesday 30th April for our Let’s talk About Men’s Wellbeing event at the Village Hotel, Bournemouth, in partnership with University Hospital Dorset NHS Charity and supported by our health and wellbeing sponsor Lester Aldridge. This event is open to all.

The event will provide an opportunity to informally discuss men’s health and wellbeing, covering arrange of topics that all contribute to our mental and physical wellbeing. We will begin with informal networking and hear from experts in the following areas:


An introduction to men’s wellbeing
Dr Gareth Sherwood will give an introductory overview of the key aspects of maintaining positive physical and mental health for men including taking care of our weight, lifestyle and changes as we age.

 
Mental health and wellbeing
Managing stress, problems at work or at home or dependency of some kind are major issues for many men – and 75% of people that commit suicide are men. Men often feel very guarded in talking about mental health. Health and wellbeing specialist Rachel Williams of Zest Lifestyle will explore why we need to take care of our mental wellbeing and break the taboos around men’s mental health.

We will also be joined by Dominic White of Andy’s Man Club, a men’s suicide prevention charity, offering free-to-attend peer-to-peer support groups across the United Kingdom and online. They want to end the stigma surrounding men’s mental health and help men through the power of conversation.

Almost 1 in 8 men will get prostrate cancer in their lifetime. This session will explain how to spot the symptoms and test available. We’ll also discuss various aspects of men’s urological health with Kevin Turner who is a Consultant Urological Surgeon and Visiting Professor

Bowel Cancer
But bowel cancer can affect anyone of any age. 1 in 15 men will be diagnosed with bowel cancer during their lifetime. Robert Howell, who is a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon, will explore the importance of good bowel health, recognising bowel symptoms, bowel cancer and screening.
