This image details a technique to start questioning negative thoughts about ourselves, but it's one that can take some practice! If you need some help, you can self-refer at mhm.org.uk/talking-matters-warrington

For men, being told to “man up” or “act like a man” is something they learn in childhood, and it stays with them into adulthood. Following them into the workplace which means over time, men get really good at turning off their emotions or coping with their feelings in a way that is more acceptable for males.

Is it time for change?
