About The Event

Speaking as a Man..

Welcome to a series of exciting, interesting and intriguing online lectures offering personal and professional insights into how men perceive experiences of boys and men, and the cultural messages that influence behaviour and difficulties.

Against a background of rising rates of mental health problems for men and an increased awareness of gender politics, these lectures provide more than statistics. Speaking from experience, our lecturers will encourage delegates to think more deeply about how we understand boys and men, the strategies that develop their resilience and the questions we need to ask.

15th June - A Young Man's Journey out of Trauma with Simon Weston

In this presentation, Simon will share how, as a young man, he turned his experience of trauma into a motivating force.
