Welcome back Warriors! We are nearing the end of this drive to raise awareness around suicide prevention. We have had some incredible chats about what we can do to turn the tide of male suicide, how to support men with depression, anxiety, ptsd and trauma. We have been elevating the conversation so that we reach the men who need to hear the message. We have promoted men's groups, men's workshops, men's retreats and men's workshops.
We've covered and delved into what can be done with a boots on ground approach to Men's mental health. We've discovered simple solutions to a complex task. It is not the fault of the NHS by the way, but rather it is our responsibility to connect and create a community for our fellow man. Our friends, boy friends, husbands, fathers, strangers, friends of friends and old friends and more. A brotherhood of men helping men. That is the key and it is something we are not powerless over. Jordan Peterson talks about men's desire to take responsibility, this is your responsibility right now today to unite, reach in, reach out and connect.
Today I welcome Andy Grant, successful entrepreneur, podcast host, campaigner and all round good man!
We're talking today about feelings and how to feel, emotional intelligence, emotional security, vulnerability as a man, how feelings are going to help you get the hell out of shit pit you feel you're in. We talk about how you can teach yourself to be unafraid of where your feelings might take you, and to harness the power of the reliable source of empowerment on the planet: Your feelings.
