Between Monday 15th and Friday 19th November, Staffline celebrated International Men's Day across the UK through our Learner Experience Platform (LXP).
International Men's Day is celebrated worldwide and highlights the positive value that men bring to the world, their families and communities. Together with Movember, the annual awareness event for men's health issues (prostate cancer, testicular cancer, men's suicide), we wanted to shine a light on men's health and wellbeing throughout the week.
On Thursday, we were delighted to welcome a very special guest speaker, Oliver Vikse. Oliver represents #ANDYSMANCLUB, a charity committed to helping men across the UK by providing a safe space to speak openly about their troubles and most importantly, save lives.
Oliver's webinar, 'Challenging the Men's Mental Health Stigma', discussed the awe-inspiring story of #ANDYSMANCLUB and the chilling realisation of the crisis of men's health, together with his background story to an exclusively-male Staffline audience.
The #ITSOKTOTALK campaign, cultivated by the co-founder of #ANDYSMANCLUB Luke Ambler (the brother-in-law of Andy Roberts, a man who sadly took his own life at 23 in early 2016) has been recognised as the biggest mental health campaign on the planet, with over 100 million taking parts.
Our aim for this week was not only to celebrate and raise awareness for International Men's Day, but also to encourage our male colleagues to start having conversations about their health and wellbeing and offer our female colleagues resources that enable them to support their male loved ones.
