Enabling everyone to imagine, fund & launch local projects that bring Worcestershire to life
The Safe Man Programme distils years of experience in Secondary Education, Mental Health Training and Domestic Abuse prevention work. It will bring together small groups of young and adult men (separately, as age-appropriate) and provide a forum for the exploration of challenges facing men in terms of health, safety, wellbeing, legality & relationships. I am highly experienced in designing and delivering training programmes and events on these themes and have qualifications in Youth Mental Health First Aid (Instructor level) and Applied Suicide Prevention. There is a growing need for innovative and challenging programmes for young and adult men in order to address the following needs: *Male Mental Health *Male Suicide *Male-on-male assault *Male-on-female assault and Domestic abuse The Safe Man Programme is an opportunity for groups of young and adult men to develop knowledge and skills to lead respect-based dialogues in their peer groups, families & places of work/study.
