The workplace has been recognized as a promising setting for implementing mental wellness initiatives with men yet many programs hold little "manly" appeal, and consequently fail to engage men in the workplace. A gender-sensitized workplace mental wellness program called HEADS Up was developed based on a systematic review of the literature as well as feedback from workplace representatives and men working in male-dominated industries. The new HEADS Up program will be described, along with strategies for supporting men's mental health identified in the systematic literature review. In addition, insights into avenues for the promotion of mental health in the workplace from working men as well as the input of seven workplace representatives in health and safety roles will be summarized.
You will learn:
- About the current literature on mental health promotion interventions for men, including the principles informing and patterns underpinning effective programs
- Strategies for designing acceptable workplace approaches for the promotion of mental wellness based on recommendations from working men and workplace representatives
- About the development of a new program called HEADS Up to support men's mental well-being
