Some people will decide to cope with such problems in various ways, for example, seeking help from friends, self-help books, or a mental health professional.

The third annual Male Psychology Conference took place at University College London (UCL) on 24th – 25th June 2016.

Psychologists and other therapists, researchers and charity workers, and even some interested members of the public, gathered to find out how they could do more to improve the mental health and wellbeing of men and boys. We enjoyed workshops from the Canadian expert in combat stress, Prof Marvin Westwood, and the legendary Dr Warren Farrell expert on relationship counselling and male psychology.

Male psychology is about psychological aspects of men and boys. Most people don’t realise that three quarters of suicides are by men, and that boys have been falling behind girls in education since the 1980s. These and other issues are not being sufficiently addressed by psychologists, nor by others who might help e.g. in the government, health services and the media. This is why it is important to take an interest in male psychology.
To address the urgent issues facing men and boys effectively, we need a solid platform from which to focus the skills and creativity of those who want to help. A Male Psychology section of the British Psychological Society would be the ideal platform from which to achieve this. That is why we are asking members of the BPS to vote for the Male Psychology section http://www.malepsychology.org.uk/male-psychology-network/vote-for-a-male-psychology-section/
