Men’s mental health: beyond victim blaming
December 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
[Sorry – tickets SOLD OUT, but in case there are cancellations, you can try via the Eventbrite link below]
In this presentation, Dr Rob Whitley will argue that too much discourse surrounding men’s mental health involves victim-blaming and a misplaced deficits-based approach. He will argue that this should be replaced by a strengths-based, public-health oriented approach with more attention paid to individual capabilities, social determinants and health service reform.
The event will take place at the JZ Young lecture theatre, UCL.
