Focus on Men's Mental Health

Skylight supports men’s mental health and wellbeing, and recognises that grief may look and feel differently for men, than it does for women. In an effort to contribute to this ongoing conversation, Skylight recently held a Men’s Grief and Wellbeing Workshop. The workshop promoted men’s mental health, by examining how gender-responsive support, enhances resilience and wellbeing.

Dr. Chris Bowden (Victoria University of Wellington) and Dr. Sarah McKenzie (Otago University, Wellington) explored evidence-based research, on how men cope and manage grief, and the role masculinity plays in men’s ability to seek support. Some key takeaways from the session, emphasised that men may prefer alternative methods to grieving, such as actively pursuing activities. Sometimes men will avoid the issue as a way of coping, which involves trying to minimise the problem, dealing with things privately, and/or venting emotions. Read more
