Listening For Direction: The Development and Optimization of Workplace Mental Wellness Programs For Men

Free 1 Hour
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.
