We are experiencing a historical change in society’s attitude towards men’s mental health. It’s no longer a taboo subject and there’s a growing awareness that getting men to open up and talk about their issues isn’t just an opportunity to prevent blokes from boiling over, but a chance to help men grow into more confident, purposeful and rounded people.
We believe the group setting is the most powerful way to help men achieve this. Having helped thousands of men work through their sh*t, the key is all about creating and holding the space for them to do so.
Our MenFacilitate programme trains people like you to hold these spaces and make the best impact when you take these learnings back into your own communities.
What You Will Learn
Our accredited MenFacilitate training day, designed to enable you to facilitate and develop your own *men’s groups.
You will learn:
* how to draw forth deeper discussion and respectfully respond from your centre, without judgment or influence.
* group dynamics
* body language
* masculine psychology
* the nitty gritty details such as time-keeping, holding the space and professional boundaries
* curve ball scenarios and how to deal with them
* how to find men to join your men’s group and what you should charge.
The skills you will learn don’t just apply to men’s groups. You can apply them at home, your workplace and any community, educational, or professional group and meeting.
Prices & Dates
We are currently running an early bird offer at the reduced price of £150+VAT (normally £200+VAT)
Upon completion of the training day you will be invited to debrief with the other facilitators after our daily online MenCheck-in groups, whether you've facilitated or not.
You might also have the opportunity to co-host a break-out room via Zoom, with the opportunity to facilitate your own room further down the line if you would like to do so. Facilitators are not paid for holding these groups.
You’ll also be eligible to take part in MenDebrief group sessions that take place on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month from 2pm-4pm. This is where facilitators can debrief their own groups as well as MenSpeak groups and have their questions answered (£25+VAT per session).
Currently, we hold our accredited training days online on the 1st Saturday of every month. We ask attendees to join 15 minutes before the scheduled 10.30am start. Training days run until 4.30pm, with no more than 8 attendees taking part.
