Promoting Social Connectedness to support men’s mental health

25 May @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEST

Promoting Social Connectedness To Support Men'S Mental Health

Promoting Social Connectedness to support men’s mental health

Presenters: Brendan Quinn, Ian Zajac, Peter Torenbeek, Facilitated by Sean Martin.


Wednesday 25 May 2022

Being socially connected is important for maintaining our mental health and wellbeing. A recent report from Ten to Men: the Australian Longitudinal Study on Male Health showed that men who were unemployed, single and/or living alone had lower levels of social support and less rewarding relationships.

Understanding what supports social connectedness is important for the wellbeing of men and their families. This webinar will discuss current research on social connectedness and share implications for practice to support men’s mental health.

In particular, this webinar will:
• Discuss Ten to Men’s research findings regarding social connectedness among adult Australian males, including certain groups who might experience less social connection, and the role of community engagement in supporting wellbeing
• Explore how practitioners can start conversations about social connectedness with men using a client-led process
• Provide key insights from the Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA), which supports men’s mental health through facilitating community engagement and social supports.
This webinar will be of interest to organisations and practitioners working to engage men in mental health, family, relationship and community services.
