International Men’s Day Sunderland - a new free online platform offering support to everyone (not just men!)

Last years International Men’s Day (IMD) was a great success and we have now put all the content from the live session in a free to access platform.

On November 19 International Men’s Day celebrates worldwide the positive value men bring to the world, their families and communities.

For the last two years, we have had an event in Sunderland to support and promote health and mental wellbeing for all (not just men).

This online content has been put together with the permission of the speakers and those involved to help a wider audience access this material. This has been possible with the support and sponsorship of Esh Group to make this content available to all free online for the next two years.

The platform is a simple to use tool for anyone to access and listen to our latest three speakers share their insights, tool and approaches to help us all through this challenging time.

The platform showcases the three talks that were delivered by three experts in our live session. These three talks are:

Dave Algeo - The importance of our social connections, how to leverage and take care of them in difficult times.

This has influenced his current work in speaking and coaching on the subject of developing resilience and enhancing wellbeing, He has a particular focus on working with men seeking to recover from burnout and achieve greater balance between success and wellbeing.
