This week is International Men's Health Week - a time to encourage supportive thought and discussion around men’s health and wellbeing.

In Australia, Men's Health Week provides a platform for challenging and debating key issues in men's health, while encouraging conversation around what it means to be healthy - both physically and mentally. 

As a GO1 customer, you’re no doubt familiar with many of our professional development and compliance training providers by now. But did you know the GO1 Premium library also includes online learning around the important topic of mental health?

Kurzgesagt

According to research, the two main threats to male mental health, outside of seeking for help, is loneliness and depression. 

Kurzgesagt uses their passion for knowledge and storytelling to bring awareness to a variety of topics, including mental health. 

🌎* Loneliness

Everybody feels lonely sometimes. But only few of us are aware how important this feeling was for our ancestors - and that our modern world can turn it into something that really hurts us. Why do we feel this way and what can we do about it?

🌎 An antidote to dissatisfaction

Everybody is familiar with the feeling that things are not as they should be. That you are not successful enough, your relationships not satisfying enough. That you don’t have the things you crave.

This video talks about one of the strongest predictors of how happy people are, how easily they make friends and how good they are at dealing with hardship.

We hope that these resources help to encourage supportive thought and conversation around some of the key issues affecting the lives of men. 

Having clear, open discussions around mental health can be an important step forward in providing men with opportunities for connection, support, and education to enhance their health and wellbeing.
