“The best wellness program for men ever, largely because it is completely adaptable to local needs”

Gary Glover shared his thoughts on this event on facebook

 

what a privilege and a pleasure to finally meet Doug last night, and very exciting to see groups of men will be getting together in Almonte, Carleton Place and Perth to talk about getting men sheds going in this area. If you’re interested ask mr. google about it or get in touch with me and i’ll try to get you in contact with the local working groups. This is demonstrably the best wellness program for men ever, largely because it is completely adaptable to local needs.

    link to an article on Men and Mental Health event that happened this spring http://millstonenews.com/2015/03/healthy-minds-healthy-men-a-community-conversation-2.html. It would be great to hear more about efforts to focus more on the gender devide or unique approaches needed…. between men and women, along with more appreciation of the culture, class and contexts – etc. etc. people are Living in, and what “HELP” would be most … “helpful.”
