Beyond The Beers

BTB fb eventLooking after your health requires more than maintaining the physical body; we also need to ensure we’re looking after our mental health. Regardless of gender, age, cultural or socio-economic background, anyone may be affected by poor mental health at some stage in their life. When it comes to men, many find it difficult to share their difficult experiences with others, and adhere to misguided and outdated notions of masculinity by simply ‘manning up’ or sweeping their struggles under the carpet.
