The NYCI Youth Health Programme has created this video to highlight issues experienced by young men around mental health.
In 2018 the National Youth Health Programme (NYHP) conducted a rapid needs assessment among the youth work sector in Ireland to investigate ‘Young Men’s Health’. From the assessment according to youth workers anger (88%), anxiety (86%) and stress (86%) are biggest factors young men are dealing with in today’s society.
In response, for Men’s Health Week 2019, we have created a series of short videos to support youth workers to start the conversation with young men in dealing with these issues. The theme of Men’s Health Week 2019 is to ‘Take the Time and Make the Time’ for young men’s health so we encourage all those working with young men to watch our series of videos to highlight ways in which young men can support their health, starting with their mental health.
