Mental Health Workshops for Corporates
Gender Perceptions and Mental Health
No5 delivers Mental Health Workshops in schools and colleges in Reading, with the aim to educate, support and build self-awareness in young people around issues they face today.
There are 7 workshops in the series, based on current issues relevant to young people.
Workshops are developed in collaboration with our Young Ambassadors, aged 16-25, and our counsellors at No5. They are currently being delivered by No5’s Projects Coordinator, Abbie, and No5’s Outreach and Wellbeing Support Counsellor, Nathanya, both who have lived experience of No5’s service.
Workshop 4 - Gender Perceptions and Mental Health
Tackle gender stereotypes and expectations that create barriers for young people and their mental wellbeing.
Students will learn about the gendered expectations, myths and stereotypes in how young people ‘deal’ with feelings and emotions; such as “man up”. We’ll explore why this might be, what we can do about it, and demonstrate the impact of this on young mental health and suicide rates.
Your participants will:
- Benefit from peer-led education and resources
- Learn myths and facts around gender-based inequalities in mental health
- Understand the impact of gender stigma on young people
- explore their own attitudes to gender in mental health
- Gain knowledge of the impact and outcomes of these issues on young people’s mental health
- Challenge gender stereotypes that effect young people’s ability to get support
