South Lake Leisure Centre and Watersports have put together a free exciting seven-day programme, challenging everyone to try out a new activity and discover a different way to improve wellbeing during each day of Men’s Health Week 2021.
Even before the pandemic, men’s mental health was a cause for concern. There is a grave disparity in the high number of men who die from suicide and the low number of men who seek treatment for depression, anxiety and other mental health challenges.
Everybody’s mental health has been challenged by the lockdowns and insecurities of the last year and it’s not over. As we emerge from what we hope will be the worst of the pandemic, questions, concerns and anxieties remain.
Through Men’s Health Week 2021 (14-21 June) we are trying to find positive ways to move forward. Experience our range of activities and then pick your favourites and do them again!
