Wellbeing Workshop Series: Navigating Covid-19 for South Asian Men
This series is designed to enable participants to reflect on their mental wellbeing and how they engage with their outer world. Research shows that self-identifying men have a strong hesitancy when it comes to seeking help for their mental wellbeing due to various stigmas. Our aim is to provide a safe space, tools and resources that holistically serve a positive purpose in the life of South Asian men.
You are welcome to attend any or all of the workshops. Please make sure you sign up as spaces are limited! The workshops are hosted on the second Thursday of each month from March - July.
This series is designed specifically for South Asian Men. If you are from a different background and would like to access similar workshops, make sure to explore our other events.
