Pub Discussion

Young men’s mental health needs are often being missed and new solutions are needed. Come and hear an exploration of traditional masculine norms on young men’s mental health.

Dr Simon Rice presents “Young men’s mental health: Considerations for engagement and gender-appropriate practice”.

This presentation will focus on the need for relevant and acceptable services that reach in to the lives of young men. This will include reasons why our current approaches with young men are not identifying sufficient numbers of young men at risk, and what needs to change to address the problem.

The presentation will also highlight the recently released report “Keeping It Real: Re-imagining Mental Health Care for all Young Men” from Orygen, The National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health.

Discussion will focus on understanding the ways in which masculinity and social expectations can impact young men’s mental health and help-seeking behaviours, identifying key ethical issues in working with young men, and awareness of modifications to practice, including clinical assessment and therapy that may enhance young men’s mental health.

A pub discussion is a relaxed opportunity to observe a presentation on an interesting topic related to cognitive behavioural therapy. There are opportunities for the willing to engage in a discussion relating to the topic towards the end of the presentation.
