Men’s mental health: beyond victim blaming

December 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

[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.

Print-outs of tickets are required, and are available from Eventbrite for this free event https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mens-mental-health-beyond-victim-blaming-tickets-47920829491
