Description:
Between March 2011 and October 2012, the Men’s Health Forum in Ireland (MHFI) coordinated an all-island action learning project which involved a broad range of stakeholders. This initiative sought to identify a range of possible means to promote positive mental health among young men on the island of Ireland and to assess the efficacy of these approaches. The final report on this project included a ‘Conclusion and Recommendations’ section which made twelve key proposals. MHFI submitted a successful funding application to the National Office for Suicide Prevention to support the roll-out of one of these recommendations - Recommendation 10. The core aim of this initiative (titled ‘Engaging Young Men Project’) is to develop a training package which will increase the capacity of service providers and practitioners to effectively engage with young men in relation to programmes which promote positive health and wellbeing.
