According to the Mental Health Foundation, social expectations for men play a large role in their mental health.
Men grow up with a kaleidoscope of thoughts about how they should act in life and what masculinity is. There’s an assumed ‘need’ to be the bread winner and display all of the stereotypical masculine traits such as bravery, dominance, and control. Some men can be left confused about their role in modern society, and what others want or need from them.
According to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, men have greater difficulty talking about their own mental health struggles than women. If that resonates with you, this course will help.
Over 12 modules, we’ll explore the challenges faced by men in business and life today and reveal some simple steps that’ll help you lead a happier, more successful life.
HOW DOES THE COURSE WORK?
Good mental health is not just the absence of diagnosed mental health problems although good mental health and wellbeing will help protect against the development of many such problems.
A person experiencing good mental health and wellbeing will be able to fulfil a number of key areas of life. For example:
Our course is designed to help you lead a happier, healthier life, irrespective of your circumstances.
It does this by looking at all of the above and a number of other fundamental principles of good mental health and wellbeing.
The course contains 12 modules each containing video content, activities and exercises, and other downloadable resources.
You can take the course whenever is most convenient for you and revisit each module in the future, if you need to. All you need is a device (a laptop, smartphone or tablet will do), an internet connection, and a little bit of your time. We're sure you'll agree that it's worth the investment.
THE DANGERS OF NOT ACTING
As noted by the Royal College of Psychiatrists, the difficulty men have with talking about their mental health often results in a reliance on alcohol or other vices. Seen as ‘self-medication’, these perceived solutions only make the situation worse.
When working long hours with high demands on your role, it isn’t unusual to feel worn out with all of that pressure to constantly perform. You’re probably fearful of letting people down and feel that you have to project a certain image while at work.
You can’t always be stoic, brave, or energetic - nor can you work constantly. In doing so, your relationships will become strained and you’ll never have any time to yourself or your loved ones.
As a result, you’ll regularly feel angry, frustrated, and irritable. And those feelings are only exacerbated by constant worries related to keeping up your current lifestyle, paying the mortgage, and putting food on the table.
This pressure can easily lead to:
However, you can avoid all of these issues by being kind to yourself and recognising when you need to take action with your mental health. Finding this website is the first step on that journey.
IS THE COURSE SUITABLE FOR ME?
Yes. Our Mental Resilience Toolkit is built for men of all ages, professions, and backgrounds.
Whether you’re simply feeling low or have turned to substances such as alcohol or drugs to cope, the impact on your physical and mental health can have a significantly negative affect on your life.
The good news is that there is a way out and a path to a happier, more fulfilled life. If you identify with the challenges we’ve mentioned, this course will reveal the actions you can take to thrive in life by looking after your own wellbeing.

Claire has had a corporate career spanning 20 years, having managed and directed businesses in the financial services sector since she was just 20 years old.
This has given her a very broad business knowledge and a great deal of experience in facing and overcoming the challenges that all business owners face at some time in their business careers. Latterly, since selling her Insurance business, she has worked in a consultancy capacity as a strategic development director, helping businesses to look at all areas of development of their business.
Claire started to use some of her time to help others as a volunteer with Samaritans, after experiencing a difficult period in her life. She realised that she wanted to use her skills and experiential knowledge to help other people facing difficult times; and in particular, mental health issues. This led her to undergo various additional training programs via Samaritans, Mental Health First Aid England and as a Coach; to begin volunteering and working privately with people; and to start speaking candidly about issues relating to mental health and suicide.
In March 2018 Claire experienced a double tragedy- the loss of her partner due to suicide and shortly after the loss of their unborn child. Experiencing loss like this has made Claire all the more determined to take her experience, training and knowledge and help as many people as possible. Her vision is to lead a global shift in attitudes towards mental health and suicide.
In the last few years, having become increasingly concerned by the growing epidemic of mental health problems, she has become passionate about helping to effect change by educating people, by breaking down taboos and opening up the conversation about mental health.
Claire leads our program development, delivers training and coaching; and is a prolific speaker. She continues to be a committed volunteer, giving much of her time to her local Samaritans branch.
As well as being a listening volunteer with The Samaritans, Claire is also qualified as a Mental Health First Aider and CLARITY Practitioner
